The Tadpoles

Recommended Posts

Located 12000 light years away in the constellation of Auriga (the Charioteer).

Less than 2hrs on this one (seems to be my average recently) using 360secs exposure on SWED 80 with L-eXtreme filter and 294mc pro.

Moon 70% illuminated. Bortle Class 5.

Stacked in DSS and processed in Photoshop CS - RGB format.

That is a very fine image, I particularly like the highlights in the Tadpoles heads.  I agree with Allan about the noise reduction though

Yes - a consequence of short integration times due to our lousy weather!! Easy to be heavy handed in image processing.
