My best M3 so far.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I have done any imaging, but with the mild evening yesterday and the relatively clear sky, I thought that it was too good an oppurtunity to miss so out into my tiny, light polluted back garden I went.

The attached is the result of 19 x 38 second exposures taken with my trusty 400D / Celestron C8 SCT / HEQ5 Pro combo. Stacked in DSS and curves adjusted in PSP. Looking back through my previous attempts, I believe this is my best M3 so far :p

DOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHH !!!! 1st post in ages and I have managed to put this in the "observing deep sky section" :). Please can someone move this to it's proper home - thanks :)

That's a beauty, SH !! :)

I'd be happy to move it to the Imaging zone (where more people can drool over it :p ).

Have just had a fiddle with the "unsharp mask" in PSP in an attempt to seperate the stars in the middle more, but I am not sure if I have over done it.

What do you think ?

It does look better, but slightly more blue.
