M101 - without incidents for a change


 Share

Recommended Posts

Having had¬†a couple of clear(ish) nights without a full moon for a change, I managed to get a go¬†on M101. The conditions were not as good as I had hoped with only average seeing from a Bortle 6 location. What was more pleasing is that I did not make any of my usual cock-ups and everything workedūü•≥

This was 3.5 hours of luminance, 75 minutes per channel of RGB and 2 hours of Ha taken with an ASI1600MM. Processing was done with APP and Affinity. Constructive comment and advice appreciated. I feel I should be getting more detail from the amount of integration time, but maybe I am expecting too much.

That's come out nice,

Detail is good the only thing that its lacking a bit is blue,

There's normally a fairly strong blue  hue to most of the galaxy

for some reason there does not seem to be none.

the Ha is really coming through nice though.

well done

Probably my poor processing. I think when I put it through APP star colour calibration it tends to go blue for most things. I probably undid the blue a bit too much. Ooops!

New version below - now with blue!!
