First Narrowband- Heart and Soul

Recommended Posts

I’ve always wanted to attempt narrowband and in particular the Hubble palette. 


This is my effort on the heart and soul nebula’s with the Samyang 135 and ASI1600mm. 


90x120 Ha

30x120 Sii 

30x120 Oiii

+calibration frames. 


I have to be honest, I’m not really sure how I got to this ‘final’ image as there was a lot of fiddling and googling going on! Looking for some honest feedback. My stars aren’t the greatest, mainly due to including an hours worth of Ha which wasn’t framed properly and had poor stars. Actually my corners (and focus) never seem to be great with my Samyang copy, so this is also cropped down. 


May have overdone it a bit with saturation and contrast and the background sky may be a bit too bluish? Will keep working at it and hopefully use any feedback from here!


Edit to add calibrated and stacked Ha, Sii and Oiii channels. Alwys interested to see what people can do with my data.
