Can't process Rosette Nebula. Is my data bad?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Last night, a clear sky after a long while for me, I decided to take a few shots. I setup my rig in the garden and shot Rosette Nebula for an hour an a half... I am new to this, so don't stone me if I completely messed up.

I used a modded dslr, an L-eXtreme filter and shot 30 x 180".

I also added 20 flats in there.

Here is the stacked photo tif attached... can you tell me if I messed up stacking, if the data is bad or if I can't post process it due to inexperience?

Here's also a photo of how it looked on my asiair pro while shooting.

No description available.

 

 

Many thanks in advance :)

I can't open either of these.

Thank you for the reply and trying to check out the files, Peter.

After spending some more time and working on the tif without the flats, I managed to make this.... is that bad? What could I do to improve it?

Thank you

I’m not very experienced either but I think that’s pretty good for 90 mins exposure. What’s the DSLR and what bortle level are your skies?  For what it’s worth these are my efforts from Friday night; 27 x 300 seconds, bortle 5, QHY 8L-C:
