ORION, 55 hoours.

Recommended Posts

Phew, first draft of the monster, having got the last colour panel last night.

Samyang 85 camera lens/Geoptik adapter and Atik 4000s on Tak EM200 mount. Ha in the mono, 6 x 5 hours in 10 min subs. OSC 6 x 4 hours in 10 mn subs. Processing in PixInsight, Photoshop, Registar and Microsoft ICE.

I wasn't trying to go insanely deep cos I wanted it to look like Orion plus a bit, so to speak. I'd appreciate feedback from different screens because these big mosaics are pretty hard to control...

Oh, I added a touch of Horse to M42 from my 30 hour image from last year.

Cheers,

Olly

Jeez Olly, that is amazing.

Comon, give the details panes, FL, etc and an option for the full sized downlad ?

To think, M42 and Running Man or the Flame and HH only just fit into my MN190 F1000 FoV

That's an enormous amount of work, but good grief what an amazing result... Well done Olly.

Hi Olly,

I downloaded it. Stretch the **** out of it. Pulled it all over the place. Went back to your early panels. Looked again and......... nope. You've hidden the joints very well.

I await your second draft. No rush, tomorrow would be nice :)

Dave.

Fantastic, a massive effort and an equally massive return. Would make an awsome poster.

And a great desktop image :)

Wonderful Olly, you must be pleased after all the hard work you have put in. For once awesome seems appropriate.

HOLY CR*P Thats beatiful!

I have to say alot of the images you see cover such a small area its hard to relate them to the sky, but that is like a full hand's worth of sky at arms length- it really shows whats there that you can't see with the naked eye!

Thanks so much for posting... (Damn, now I want to do DS imaging- MORE expense!)

It's gonna be gorgeous Olly. Looks a bit on the red side on my screen, but it might just be all that Ha there. Peter's pow from last week might be a helpful reference for the red balance?

Funnily enough I just rigged an old slr lens to my QHY8, and the FOV you have here is pretty much what I can get on the chip in one go. If the result was anywhere near this good I reckon i'd ditch the scopes alltogether :)

Beautifully done and, nope, can’t see the joins. Looks great on my screen (Apple 23" flat screen) though I downloaded it and added the standard profile - Adobe rgb - which I think improves it even more. Nice one. Doubt if I’ve had 55 hrs of imaging weather here in a year!
