A Rosette for Christmas

Recommended Posts

I went to my family house in the countryside and was able to take some pictures during xmas eve.

939941669_Rosettev5.thumb.jpg.7c0ccd09cfbdc31c9991b247b469a6a9.jpg

Total exposure: 6h
H_Alpha: ~3h (730x15s) --> R, G
Oxigen III: ~3h (710x15s) --> B, G

I didn't have a view on Polaris and could not spend too much time drift aligning (it was xmas eve after all :D) hence the short exposures. Moreover I dont have the proper connection rings to put my flattener on my mono camera so all stars off center are a mess :_(.

It is a very nice image, i like the colours best of all. Spacing I find a nightmare I have two issues with different scopes, Even when you know what you need it seems far from easy to actually get hold ot the bits and understanding the mass of different thread sizes only adds to the confusion.

That is very nice for such short exposures! I didn't realise that you could achieve such an image from 15" exposures.

Out of interest, what 'scope did you use?

Thanks Alan! You're totally right, I'm still learning and sometimes it feels like I'm trying to play a puzzle of "how to get to 45mm with pieces A, B and C", and most of the pieces dont fit!

@Bryan, I used a Tak FS60-CB (without flattener) and ASI 1600MM (astronomiks NB filters) on a Star Adventurer Pro.

      I've reluctantly decided to sell all of my AP kit in the hope that someone out there will be able to do this lovely kit the justice that it deserves better than I can.
      I therefore have the following items for sale:
      10 Micron GM1000 HPS Mount with GPS, stickstation, 2 x counterweights, remote on/off push button and pier adapter - £5000
      Takahashi FSQ106ED with spacers, CA35 camera adapter, parallax tube rings, finder, dovetail (with counterweight bar) and 0.73 reducer - £4300
      Atik 460ex mono - new electronics fitted by Atik in Feb 2020 - £1300
      Chroma 1.25" 3nm Ha, S and Oiii filters - £1000
      Chroma 1.25" LRGB filters - £320
      Aurora Cloud Sensor and serial adapter - £180
      Lakeside Focuser, serial adapter and 2 x motors - £230
      Starlight Xpress Lodestar 1 - £240
      Starlight Xpress OAG - £110
      Starlight Xpress filter wheel (new electronics in 2017) and 7 x 1.25" carousel - £190
      Pulsar 2.2m full height dome in Dark Green with one equipment bay with prototype ASCOM motor drive - £1800
      Condensing dehumidifier - £100
      Gerd Neumann Flat Panel - £80
      All of this is in good condition and has spent its life in a dehumidified dome. The major items all come in their original boxes and packing.
      This is all still set up in the observatory, so any potential purchaser can see it all in action if they want to.
      Images taken with this kit can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/perrybarn/
      I'm open to sensible offers on all this kit and I'm also open doing a deal for the whole lot as a bundle.
      I'm not planning to sell anything until the mount and scope have gone - but please PM me if you're interested in anything on the list and I'll back to you on a first come -first served basis.
      All items are collect from Somerset UK or plus P&P.
      Payment will only be accepted via BACS and items not released until cleared.

      This is the first time I have shot any thing other than M42 and M45 regarding nebulae. Like the M42 I have just posted 10x 60's subs with darks flats and bias, ISO 200 at prime focus.

      Hello
      I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion that might help me
      My imaging set up is an RC reflector with an FLI proline 16803 camera and 50mm Astrodon filters (LRGB + 5nm narrow band)
      I have had a string of issues...everything from my mount had mechanical problems to my telescope had issues with the mirror cell to some family distractions...but at long last I seem to have everything working with the exception of the Astrodon Ha filter.
      Attached are representative 30minute subframes of the horse head and Pacman nebulae in Ha, SII, and OIII.  I get similar results with different objects although for bright, broad spectrum targets like M42, I will get data from the Ha filter (much as the stars shine thru on the HH and Pacman) although even that data does not comport with other imager’s Ha images of those objects. The LRGB performance appears to be normal.  My hypothesis is that this Ha filter is defective, perhaps not centered on 656.3nm
      I have contacted Astrodon and exchanged a couple of emails with Cary Chleborad seeking some help.  At first he claimed there was no issue because with enough manipulation some data could be extracted from the Ha. Later, when confronted with the other narrowband frames and the obvious difference to the Ha, at first he ghosted me, but when I said I would ask other imagers for help, he responded with a new position stating that because of the way the filters are made and their robust quality processes, it is impossible for the filter to be defective and therefore something else must be at issue.  He does not offer a suggestion of what might be the problem, nor is he interested in having me send the filter back for evaluation. Frankly, I’m more than disappointed given the premium I paid for Astrodon filters
      All that aside, and taking Cary’s position at face value, does anyone have an idea of what might cause this behavior other than the filter?  In a perfect world, does anyone live in the Austin, Texas area who would be willing to try my filter one night and see what they get with their equipment?
      The attached link is to the raw, uncalibrated files right off the camera.  I think a simple blink process in PixInsight will show what I’m talking about.
      I’m a little at my wits end, please help!

      Hi all, my second attempt at imaging over multiple nights, captured 60 mins Ha and a couple of 5 mins on Oiii and Sii on Christmas evening, then added more Oii and Sii on the 30th
      Total of 60 mins Ha 25 mins Sii and 30 mins Oiii
      Hubble mapped - SII,Ha,OIII = R,G,B. The Oiii data was very noisy but I'm fairly happy overall, also the ZWO Oiii filter caused a massive ring around Alnitak when stretched !
       
      Comments welcome, I know it needs more data and I will need to learn to be more patient but the year is running out  🙂
       
      Thanks for looking and have a good 2020.
