M20 Trifid Nebula Cairds
« on: May 28, 2017, 11:53:02 »
Taken at Cairds over the weekend. 

LRGB
Lum 7 x 600secs
Red 9 x 150secs Binned x 2
Green 6 x 150 secs Binned x 2
Blue 12 x 150secs binned x 2
Baader filters

ED120 + FR x0.8
Atik314L
HEQ5

The new click lock I bought seems to have dealt with the tilt in the corners, but it doesn't fit the WOZS71.

Nice Carole, it must have been very low down at Cairds but you have managed to capture a lot of detail.

Thanks Duncan.  Yes pretty low, but there's a reasonably good Southern skyline there, just one of the reasons I like this camp.

Can anyone else see a cat's face in the purple section?

Thanks Carole ~ know I'm not going senile now!

Great pic with lots of almost invisible stars lurking in the background.

That's a great result Carole.  You must have had a very clear night.  The Trifid and Lagoon can certainly be done from the UK but you need a night without any murk on the horizon.

I learned that lesson quite quickly when I moved to High Halden.  Some nights were rubbish and other nights were brilliant.

After seeing an image posted on another forum I decided my image looked far too washed out, so I did a bit of a re-process.
