Western Veil - NGC6960

Recommended Posts

Bit of hiccup with the tech last night as PHD was dropping the guide star after only a couple of minutes despite it being perfectly adequate. After I'd done a dark in PHD it behaved itself from then on.

This is the second time I've imaged this target but having used the C8-N previously it had taken up most of the frame, so I was curious what I could get with the ED80. There's some parts of Pickerings Triangle showing but not surprisingly it isn't very obvious (my camera is unmodded).

Very nice Keith!

This was my target for last night and it's interesting to see how your cam has picked up a diffrent colour than mine.... Not saying mine or yours is right/wrong but it's interesting! Is your DSLR modded?

Having your camera modded makes quite a bit of difference over mine to the amount of Ha (Red) picked up in your image Craig. Some fine stuff too may I say. The difference shows up particularly so in pickerings triangle, I think.

The rest of the colour difference I think comes down to post processing choices in photoshop.:)
