M13 - First image in a while!

Recommended Posts

Well it seems like ages since i did my last image! Astro twilight is now gone from Edinburgh but the sky seemed pretty dark at 1am!

THis is my 2nd attempt at an LRGB image but this time I had the luxury of a filter wheel so it was made a bit easier!

The exposures were only 100secs with the ED80 and Orion Starshoot2 CCD. I stopped at 100s as the Maxim screen stretch seemed to be suggesting that any more and I would be burning out the image. When I looked in Photoshop (After the event!) the data was in a tiny portion of the histogram so I am not sure now how to read Maxim's onscreen screen stretch histogram:icon_scratch:

Anyway this is 12 L and 8X RGB all 100s

Stars look great! Colours look a bit off, I guess thats the RGB learning curve. Got that to come myself at some point :)

Very nice Craig. I thought you had been quiet for a while.

Back with a bang now though.
