The Flaming star nebula in Auriga 1500 light years from us. Nearly didn't process this as I didn't think there was enough data, glad I looked again.

Taken 9-01-21 with my ZWO 533mc Samyang 135mm @f2.8 Optolong L-enhance filter 24x 5 mins = 2 hrs exposure time. No calibration frames

Very nice indeed! That's what I hope mine will look like with some more data. When I get some 🙄.

 

Thankyou, that was my first good night with the camera  Yes agree that more time is needed but you're off to a running start. Been a very bad start to the year, got to grab a clear night when you can.

I think it must be the '533' effect?  I've had less than 2 hours sky time with mine since it arrived 3 weeks ago.    

The weather has started off a but crap this year. Thus week is no better for me.

Im considering a OSC camera in the near future ,  I cant recall the last time I finished a project with my mono CCD, I think it will be up for sale soon,  Im have the 533MC or the 2600MC in mind, It makes complete sense with the weather we get in the UK , seasons change between the clear skies I get .

A nice image for only a few hours integration.

That was my thinking exactly mark, the weather is the main reason. These newer osc  cameras and dual band filters have really come on and opened things up. I still have my mono ccd, it's still better, but one clear night in a month doesn't complete an image.

Nice to see that area in all its glory,

Looking forward to your next wide field.

Thanks  that lens is a little gem.  The cone has a lot of nebulosity round it

Great target for the 135mm.  It is a wonderful area and a nicely excecuted image.

It's amazing just how large some of these objects are.  I think the camera has done well for only 2 hrs, wonder how much better it would be with another hour or two.
