Superb image but what part of this was captured with a DSLR? The technical card indicates this was completely shot with a CCD and a very nice CCD at that. I wont lie.... I am a bit jealous of your camera and optics!

Again, very nice image and I hope to get a few hour on this later this year.

Clear Skies,
Jason

Sorry, I think I have made a mistake in choosing the section . I have just used CCD.

Beautiful M45 Roberto!
I really like seeing all of the faintest outer dust, and you did a great job preserving the star colour.

Very nice picture. One of my goals for this fall is to get a nice M45 with the dusty bits. Your picture will be a nice example for what I hope to attain.

That is a gorgeous image, even more so for only 20 minutes total exposure?!

I'm starting to think I've been doing it wrong...

That's a beautiful rendition Rob. I just did the same target and I think you did a great job bringing out the faint dust around it. The colors also appear spot on.

Thanks a lot to everybody.
It is 2x300s in Luminance + 1x300s B + 1x300s R.
The G has been synthetized as (R+B)/2 in order to spend less (I did it remotely on itelescope)

Very few people believe in it...But it is really as simple as I wrote

Roberto

Hi again
I'd like to thank you, first, for appreciating my image.

In the last 2 days I have been a little bit busy with working stuff so I had to put drastically down my internet connections.
Anyway, I've been noticed by some of my friends that in the last 36 hours there is a crew of people (not belonging to this forum but probably reading) which is sistematically spreading over internet any kind affront to me and to the work I did, mainly saying that it is a fake and I am a liar, and, actually, I really do not understand why.
Well, I got an APOD, it can generate some kind of envy - I understand -, but this doesn't justify to use bad manners at all.

What we do it is a passion and a hobby. It takes time and effort (and sometimes money) and it requires respect.

Personally, I have always admired the people (like Scott, for instance) who reached an APOD becoming to me as an example and putting my self in the condition to improve my results. I am starting to think that it is not a common way to think.

By the way, and cutting this sad parentesis, I can share my FIT - if needed - and, above all, I can share my processing techniques.
If there is someone who still doesn't believe, I can make a video sharing and process it from scratch.

Thanks again,
Roberto

Hi Roberto,
Really nice image! I can see why people don't believe it, but that is their problem ...
On the video thing, not to prove you are not lying, but it would be very interesting to see how you came to such a wonderful result!

Ignore them, there will always be people like that.

...and now I'm adding you to that group of people I admire. My goal one day is to get an APOD or get published in a magazine, like you've done. You think similar to many of us - we view what others have done and set that as the bar to raise our own standards of processing and imaging.

Great picture, one of the best I've ever seen of M45.

Thanks again to all...I'll finish this hard week of work and I'll make the video of the overall processing.
Hope it helps you!

I wouldn't do anything to prove myself to them.

There are a lot of jealous people in this world and let them have their self loathing.

Congrats on the APOD, it's a gorgeous image.

Up to now it is the third time that I make a demo on Teamviewer with desktop sharing for 3 different people on how I processed it...

Tired.
