Helix Blown up then processed

Recommended Posts

I enlarged this image I took with my SV102ED and Canon 40D I cropped out the helix then processed not sure if it was worth it but it sure is big now

That's great Les, I've not seen this one as close-up. It's pretty low this one isn't it?

It certainly was worth it. It's a super looking object, which is quite low for us in the UK at -21 degrees approx.

Nice one Les. :thumbright:

Wow, that's a beauty! I have only 'seen' this one through a GRAS telescope.

Out of interest, I found with the ring nebula, that cropping it, then enlarging the crop and converting it to a high dpi, will enable you to find details that you didn't know you had :hello2: Hmmm, maybe I should try that on other images too.....

Thanks for posting Les, enjoyed that one.

I managed to grab this image in August from a dark site (coyle fields New Jersey USA) with a great view of the Horizon if I had not gone I would not see this from my backyard because of tree's and sheds I was glad I went
