Hi all,

 

Another Ha shot from my light polluted backyard, this time is the famous Pelican nebula wink.gif

I'll probably get back to it for a reprocessing as I'm not super happy with the stars...but I think it came out prety nice for a old 12 bit DSLR (cooled and monochrome converted Canon 350D) grin.gif

Luís

Extraordinarily well detailed, Luis.  You've captured a lot of subtleties in the Pelican - quite beautiful!

Awesome image! Great detail. Which Ha/LP filter did you use?

Thank you so much Scott :)

 

I´m quite happy with it, I will just do a minor touch up on the stars as I have a tiny bit of field rotation but it's only visible at full res. ;)

 

As you recomended the 7 Nm ha filter really does wonder from my extremelly light polluted back yard, I'm a happy bunny :p

 

Just ordered an OIII 8.5 Nm 36mm Baader to start doing some bicolor, I can't wait for it to get here!

 

Cheers,

Thanks John!

 

I had this in mind for a long time but from home it was impossible, now with the Ha filter it's a whole different story :)

Hello Karl,

 

Thanks!

 

I'm using a 36mm unmounted Baader 7 Nm Ha filter, as I don't have a filter drawer system yet, I assembled it inside the T-Ring with a foam support, works great! :)

Many thanks Jerry :)

Last night I started collecting some data of IC 1396 I have a little over a hour, hope to add quite some more on the next nights...clouded over now, very frustrating :(
