2nd test drive of L-Enhance filter - Sadr Region

Recommended Posts

I couldn't really ask for less promising conditions last night. 98% moonlight, wispy cloud and neighbours having a party with a bonfire. No astro-darkness.

I took 150 x 60sec subs but discarded all but 23 due mainly to cloud.

Canon 600D (modified) and Askar FMA 135. Unguided. iso800.

Darks/flats/offset applied.

A quick stretch in Gimp with no star mask or background extraction etc.

Compared to what I would have usually expected, I am quite astonished how good this filter is.

That looks like a good start but I have no idea what the target is?  :) .....this is my first attempt at imaging with the l-enhance. 45 x 180 second exposures of IC1396.  Altair 150EDF plus 0.8 reducer and ZWO ASI533MC camera. It took a lot of faffing in Startools to tame the red!

This looks like a good target for red in NBAccents.

It is a nice filter. We find the UHC does a similar job, especially HOO.

It is the Sadr region and the butterfly nebula, good effort mate!

As you said, about as bad as conditions can get. Imagine the results under a dark and moonless sky :D

So you will improve on it a lot.

Edit: Just spotted the Crescent nebula too, very nice
