Heart Nebula ( a few re pops )

Recommended Posts

I wanted to do another target but it was hidden behind trees so while i waited I thoght I woulg give the Heart ago it was only meant to be a practice shot as Im not realy a fan of this Nebula but after seeing the Ha subs I thought I would push on. High winds and the moon hasnt helped but after a few good nights Im close to calling it finished. 

Taken over a few night I got 60 x 240 Ha, 62 x 240 Oiii and finaly 25 (poor ) Sii again 240 sec.

Scope was my SW 72 ED. ( My fav scope at the moment! )

Hints, tips and pointers most welcome.

Hi and thanks, I think my pooter screen doesnt help me as I get that comment a lot. I will see if I can adjust the green and see what goes.

Plenty of great detail there and I like the way to centre glows.  You've used the Hubble palate which, without heavy work in the processing will inevitably cause the gree to dominate.  There are and endless variety of ways to experiment in correcting for this during processing but there is a lot of trial and error.  Here is a link which may prove useful Bob Franke narrowband HST

I liked the originals, but really like and prefer this latest revision. More appealing colours to me and the crop is great too. I guess you can play about with the colours and produce all sorts of versions with this type of data?

Great images with lots of detail.  I presume your colour combination was SHO to RGB.  With a predominance of Ha in most DSOs this does lead to a lot of green.

Great work, I like the more recent versions with less green.

Great image - lots of detail! I did the heart last year in SHO and same problems with green dominating. No question all the green is a bit yucky looking, but from a data point of view it does "tell it like it is".

Yours stars are nice and small - wondering what filters you use? My Ha are small but OIII less so. 

Also - how did you get the starless version if you don't mind me asking?
