Astrophotography / Crescent nebula NGC6888
« Last post by Carole on Dec 24, 2019, 12:35:56 »
This is "sort of" a reprocess from November 2018, except I didn't use the full frame at that time, so this is the first full frame process.  I think I cropped it because I wasn't happy with the corner stars, and wasn't all that pleased with my processing of the outer nebulosity, so decided to give it another "go". 

Ha 12 x 600
Oiii 7 x 300 binned
RGB stars R x 3, B x 4, G x 4 (all 150secs binned)

Atik460EX & WOZS71 + FR x 0.8 HEQ5

Couldnt you use heavy weights and tie it to them for stability?
Crossed my mind, but where do I get the heavy weights from?

Oh dear, I am on 311. 
This won't matter for my campervan, but it will matter if I wanted to put up my camping observatory. 

Trouble is I would have to take pot luck on what other pitches are available, so might just have to forego the camping observatory.  I'll see what they say when they contact me.

Hope they have fixed the hook up on that pitch as it failed at the weekend and I had to have a really long hook up extension cable to a different hook up point.

Oh yes, on closer inspection I can see it now.

Have checked on Astrobin, and the Oiii is only at the extremities anyway, and people are saying it is very very faint, so this was quite a challenge from a LP location.

The second version has 11 hours of OIII and it barely shows...
SII is stronger but I was after a bicolour image this time around.
Thanks

I wonder if it would work with Oiii and or Sii from your location.

Announcements, Meetings, Events / Kelling Starparty Camping - Important Alert
« Last post by Roy on Dec 23, 2019, 17:30:24 »
If you are going to either of the Kelling Starparties in 2020 (i.e. April and/or October) and you have booked any of the pitches 311 - 320 in the Red Squirrel Area with the intention of pitching a tent, you will need to contact the Kelling Campsite as soon as possible as these pitches have changed status from grass to a hard standing and will no longer accommodate a tent. We discovered this purely by chance when trying to extend our April stay by a few days and then wondered why we had been charged so much (£155 instead of £125). Kelling were unaware of the issue until Sue called this afternoon - they said they will now be contacting all affected in the near future.....

Looks a really faint target Roberto, well done getting it from Petts Wood.
