M27 Dumbell Nebula ... subs taken over several nights

Recommended Posts

Hi ..

Attached is my final image of M27 taken on four widely spaced nights over a period of almost a month. Had constant battles with poor USB connections and endless cloudy nights 😞 Even on the cloudless nights the seeing wasn't that good ... and I have to contend with a fair amount of light pollution here.

I did 13 x 300sec CLS subs and only 3x300sec RGB subs. Images callibrated, aligned and stacked using MaxIm DL and processed using Photoshop ( I can't understand PixInsight yet despit many attempts!! )

I am a bit disappointed with the colour of my stars ... should I try to add a few more RGB images before M27 disappears behind some trees in my garden?

Great image!

I particularly like the star colours!

It's a steep learning curve! and I haven't even got pixinsight! although I know deep down it's inevitable.... 

Thanks for sharing
