First light with MPCC 'and' H-alpha 12nm filter NGC 6888


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I came home from a David Guetta concert last night about half twelve, and despite being a little worse for wear, I wanted to try out my MPCC as well as the Astronomik H-alpha 12nm EOS clip-in filter on my modded 1000d. Hats off to the EQ6, single star alignment, goto NGC6888, and the Jelly fish was right in the middle of the chip.

Imaging: SW 250px / Modified Canon 1000d

Guiding: SW EQ6 Pro / SW ED80 Pro / Mono Toucam

Filters/Correctors: Baader MPCC, Astronomik 12nm HA

Exposures: 24 x 600s / ISO1600 / Darks / Flats / Bias

I'm not really sure how to process these yet, but just followed my usual process of levels, curves, sharpening, noise reduction, etc.

Any comments and advice welcomed, particularly in relation to the MPCC/spacing, and processing of H-alpha images ;)

I've attached a couple of versions of the nebula, as well as before and after addition of the MPCC.





Thanks for looking
