Another go at NGC7000 in SHO


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, 

My second attempt to capture NGC 7000 using the Hubble Palette from my Bortle 8 class city Utrecht in the Netherlands. 

Some details: 

Imaging telescope: TS photoline 80mm apo

Imaging camera:ZWO ASI 1600MM-Cool pro

Mount:Celestron Advanced VX

Guiding telescope or lens:Orion Mini 50mm Guide Scope

Guiding camera:Zwo ASI120MC

Focal reducer:TS2 Flattener

Software: Deep Sky Stacker and Photoshop CC 

Filters: ZWO S-II ZWO 7nm SII,  ZWO O-III 7nm,  ZWO H-alpha 7 nm


ZWO S-II ZWO 7nm SII: 45x300" bin 1x1
ZWO H-alpha 7 nm: 68x300" bin 1x1
ZWO O-III 7nm: 65x300" bin 1x1

all cooled at -25C, 5 minutes exposure.

Compensated with flats, but had trouble adding dark frames for some reason so I left those out...

Total integration time: 15.8 hours. 

During a - close to - full mone (93%). 

Let me know what you think (honest opinions are appreciated :-)!



Cheers and clear skies,

That's come out very well from Utrecht.  I know full well the difficulties with LP I live in Bortle 8. SE London.


Thanks Carole! I'm still thinking about migrating to spain / greece to do astrophotography...especially with the weather we have been getting in the past month :-). 

I captured this early september, after that, only rain, ah well, we're used to it I guess.
