Widefield Flaming Star Nebula


Recommended Posts

Here is my attempt at a widfield Flaming Star Nebula. Giving my Astrotrac another outing I used my Canon 70-200 F4 L Lens at 200mm and, after disappointing previous attempts, was quite pleased with the result.

Wow, many thanks guys, your comments are really appreciated and inspiring.

I wasn't sure how it looked as I processed it on one of my laptops but when I looked at it on my home pc it looked way too saturated in the red areas.

I really need to get my monitors calibrated.

Thanks again guys :icon_eek:

Sorry for asking such a simple question, but how do you control the light pollution? If I take wide field subs of more than 60s then I start to see the whole image washed out in a sea of red, and trying to post process any distinct nebulosity is almost imposable.

The only thing I use to combat LP is a Astronomik CLS CCD Filter (EOS Clip) CLICKY

Seems to work very well indeed.:)

That is a wonderful image, very nicely detailed and you have the alignment bang on, get it wrong on the astrotrac at your own peril :eek:

Super job!

Thanks Guy......I love the astrotrac, great for popping in the car to take to a dark site or when I can't be bothered to get the full kit out in the garden. Taking it to a dark site in Wales in a few weeks, can't wait.:)
