100 light years across cosmic rose

Recommended Posts

Taken almost exactly one year ago, but as usual never had the time to work on it properly until some days ago.

During processing I realised that there was no reason to go after excessive detail when imaging wide field. So I sacrificed details for the sake of richer color variations, which took the longest time of the processing, (Over 20 hours)

I believe keeping great detail and rich color at the same time, is something that is very difficult to achieve. Perhaps it is possible in the future with the my new Newtonian and as processing technics progresses.

This was 7.2 hours, with two thirds for Ha and one third for OIII.

Great image! You may have motivated me to process the images I have. I doubt I’ll get that nice rich color you have.

Thanks guys! Very much appreciated! 

@Brian Maurer Just take your time with the processing. When you think it looks good try to push even further. I spent around 20 hours just to get the right color variations I was after.  Good luck

Absolutely beautiful, the colours are exquisite and there is a real sense of depth to the image.

Thank you for a very kind comment Martin!

I think Bi-color yields greater color combination possibilities than SHO. 

The longest time was spent on to decide which color combination I deemed the most interesting. There was literary dozen opened images from pixel math and Pixinsight window looked like a war zone. 

Cheers

I was going to say exactly the same as Martin, except instead of exquisite I was going to use superb. Great image and very well done.
