First attempt at Flame and Horsehead

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here is my first attempt at the flame and horsehead with an unmodded canon 650d dslr, a SW 72ed refractor and star adventurer. Very noisy but will add more data. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes of integration under bortle 8 skies. 135x30 seconds at iso 1600.1134601587_FlameandHorseheadNebula.thumb.png.47afe4a0db62209b78afacaae14cf678.png

Very nice, can even see the double in Alnitak.

Yep, I think more integration time will significantly improve this, enabling more stretching. Wish my first Horse had been this good!

Where is the histogram peak on your subs? You can do a lot with total integration time, but you have to have enough photons in the first place on each frame. If it's crammed to the left, you may wish to see how much you can extend your exposure time and still maintain a good "keeper" rate when it comes time to stack.

At 30 seconds, my histogram spike was a third of the way to the right, initially halfway even due to LP.
