Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is our first mosaic from SkyEyE Observatory with our new telescope, a 14,5" reflector.

Ola Skarpen did most of the editing while i did the stacking and stitching
It was a lot of work getting the panels aligned and stretched exactly the same, but it was definitely worth the efford.

Gear:
AG Optical Convergent FA14 14.5" reflector (1855mm/f5)
10 Micron GM2000
Optec Gemini focusing rotator
Moravian G3-16200 (pixel scale 0.67")
ZWO ASI174MM Mini (OAG)

Exposures
Chroma Ha 3nm 50mm: 101x600" bin 1x1
Baader OIII 2" 8.5nm: 48x600" bin 2x2
Baader SII 2" 7nm: 70x600" bin 2x2
Total time 36,7 hours shared between the 4 panels.

I stretched the astrobin image out over nearly three monitors! It's a brilliant image.

When you get it printed, make sure to find someone who will help you get the best results. :)

Cool. It's amazing how some images still look good even in 100% :D
I'm already in the process to find the best way to print and best paper to use for astronomy images.

I cannot comment on how it was processed, but i can tell you that it was calibrated with PI, registered and stacked with APP, stitched with APP and processed in PI
