Thanks for looking
Hi, I'm having trouble with my set-up and I suspect that the Eagle3 isn't man enough for the ASI2600. I can connect SharpCap fine and control the camera but as soon as I hit live stack SharpCap freezes or exhibits some totally undpredictable behaviour and cannot be shut down. Hooking up my guide camera to SharpCap (ASI120MM) and everything works as expected. I'm thinking that the ASI2600 sensor size is too much for the processing power of the Eagle3. Has anyone managed to get a high pixel count amera working through SharpCap and the Eagle? I'm anticpating a no, so a follow up question what other software is good for live stacking and offers simialr functionality to SharpCap? Thanks in advance
Been great to have a few nights of clear sky - I captured this last Wednesday/Thursday last week. I have only Just getting to grips with narrow band imaging/processing and I am sticking with tried and tested SHO Hubble palette for now, but very interested in the percentage combinations like the wide field recently posted by @Adreneline - Cave, Bubble and M52 - to name but a few. I'm assuming the colour palette combinations are implemented using PixelMath functions in PI - I will do some reading and jump into the processing threads to find out more I think.
But for now here's my latest SHO narrowband - I left in a hint of green on the inner lighter Ha nebulosity as I like the transition into the Blue of OIII signal
90mins each for Ha, OIII, SII , Optilong filters in 120s subs - 4.5hrs total
Captured using RPi4 /INDI/EKOS
Processed, APP,PI,PS CC
Pixel scale: 6.067 arcsec/pixel
I've been less active lately in this hobby, but I've a few images done, others waiting in the pipeline to be processed.
This is a "crowded" area of our Milky Way galaxy, visible all summer from the northern hemisphere. The Cygnus constellation is home of many named and nameless nebulae.
Starting from the left (North), below the brightest star, Deneb, the Pelican and the North America Nebulae are very popular; going to right, just below the brightest star close to the center of the image, Sadr, lies the Gamma Cygni Nebula. A bit towards the top-right there's the Crescent Nebula and going forward top-right, there's the Tulip Nebula. Finally, at the bottom-right corner, the Veil Nebula, a super nova remnant.
All these are surrounded by shiny gaseous filaments or dusty patches blocking the light.
I started this during the pandemic lockdown. All of the data was captured from my hometown from a balcony brightly lit by a sodium street lamp, but the narrowband filters did their job well, blocking successfully the sodium emission.
A total of 23 hours is made of 2x3 panels composed in a larger mosaic, each panel consisting in about 1h of exposure for the red Hydrogen and 3h of exposure for the cyan Oxigen, all through a Sigma 105 macro stopped at F/4, ASI1600MMC with 6nm Astronomik filters.
I'm planning to shoot RGB data too and make an RGB/HOO composition.
Cheers and clear skies!
