Astrophotography / Work in progress - Sharpless 224 in Auriga
« Last post by Roberto on Today at 10:57:01 »
I know I won't finish this one this week so putting it out there before we meet again.  Imaging Sh2-224 in Auriga in Hydrogen Alpha and Oxygen III and RGB.  Ha is pretty easy; OIII less so.  Image below does not have any OIII yet...

thats a nuiscance that is is such a long procedure. do you know the name of it or why it happens?

Dupuytren's disease may or may not lead to a finger contracture.  The treatment depends on a number of factors.  The least invasive treatment is a simple injection into the lumps/cords to dissolve them.   Last time I had them surgically removed.  This time I needed the full depth skin grafts.

Astrophotography / NGC6820 from 2018
« Last post by Carole on Yesterday at 23:57:14 »
Was never quite happy with the final result of this image as I could never get the blue from the Oiii to show through.  Recently I learned a new technique on "Bringing out the faint stuff" (chez Olly Penrice), so decided to have "go" at it.
It's produced a rather unusual result but I quite like it. 

Original specs:
Quote
Dual Rig

Atik314L/WOZS71
Atik460EX/ED80
Both with x0.8 focal reducer
HEQ5
Ha 29 x 600 = 4 hours 50mins
Oiii 17 x 600 binned + 5 x 300 = 3 hours 15 mins

Total imaging time = 8 hours 5mins

Oiii taken with Atik460/ED80 and Ha taken from both cameras.

New result:


Original process:

A very interesting image, considering the difficulty processing, it looks good.

Interesting article; I wonder how that will pan out in the restricted astronomy market; suspect it will favour chinese suppliers in the medium quality market.
