Title: Cone and Christmas Tree Nebula NGC2644
Post by: Carole on Jan 23, 2020, 01:16:17
Also taken from Dave's back garden in Swanley Bortle 6 since I have a big tree in the way at Home in Bortle 8. I took Oiii and Sii but it did not add anything to the colour, so as I had already taken some RGB as well, "just in case" I processed HaRGB

Atik460EX & WOZS71 HEQ5
Ha 22 x 600
RGB 9 x 150secs binned each
Total imaging time 5 3/4 hours

Link to Astrobin for any-one who can't see it like Duncan, can you guys let me know if you can see it?

Image replaced after some selective sharpening and blue halo reduction:

Hi Carole,

Isn't it about time you bought a chainsaw or moved?

BTW Can't see the picture.

Can you still not see it?

I think Astrobin have started adding images as thumbnails, so maybe they don't post up properly any more. 

I can see it, CAN ANY-ONE ELSE NOT SEE IT?

I'll post a link to Astrobin anyway.
Moving isn't an option unfortunately, Hubby is too entrenched in his social activities locally and doesn't drive any more.

I may make a joke about the tree to next door, but they were very accommodating about the position of the obsy in the first place (when the tree had been cut down) and I can get to Cairds the rest of the year.

Thanks Roger, this is the 2nd time Duncan has been unable to see an image when others can, I wonder why?

That's a good result.  It goes quite deep.

Thanks Mark, I was quite chuffed with the Ha which I stacked during the imaging run.  Not completely happy with the pink colour, but can't seem to produce anything I like better.
