NGC 7023 - Work in Progress

Recommended Posts

Since the end of May in between bad weather and Solar imaging I have managed to accumulate 19 hours of data on NGC 7023. The final image will be printed, framed and passed on as a gift so I would really welcome your feedback before I commit to the print run.

Many thanks,

 

John

I can’t offer any expert opinion on how to make it any better - I just think it looks stunning. Would make an amazing picture to grace a room.

Excellent image, not an easy target by any means.

I would like to bring out the darker dust some more and imagine I need to work on my mask technique in PixInsight.

In hindsight sticking the nebula in the centre of the frame seemed like a good idea at the time but there is so much more nebulosity going on north of the nebula that makes it a lot more interesting. A bit more research on other similar images and framing needed next time.

Thank you all for your positive responses and if anyone has a different view I am open to that too.

That would be a first for me Mark. I am looking at a suitable target that I could get my eye in on over two panes, ideally a narrow band target so watch this space. I don't really want to go back to this target as the weather is so poor who knows when I would finish it.

My wife has no plans for me to change camera/gear so I can catch up again in 2021!

Looks very nice - plenty of the dark dust picked up, but I'm not sure how well that will print. Whenever I get something printed, the faint stuff always seems to get lost.

By North, do you mean "down" - because I think your image might be upside down. Easy to turn a print around, though :)
