Tel & Pete: thanks for the comments, I really appreciate it!

Tom: Thanks, that's a real improvement!

I've downloaded DeepSkyStacker today, and had a brief 'play' with it. I'm surprised how 'user friendly' it seems to be, although I'm now realising that such a high ISO setting might not be such a good idea!

To be honest, I've already acheived as good, if not better, images than I hoped so any improvements are a bonus. As soon as I get another clear night I'm going to see what I can do with DSS; it's a major learning curve, but a really fun one!

Cheers

Robin

Hi All,

Here is my recent effot on the Rosette Nebuala. I just really enjoy the winter sky! This is from two sessions a few weeks apart.

SVR90 with focal reducer (0.8x) and field flattener (504 mm FL)
3 hrs of RGB using modded T3i
420s subs
ISO 400

1 hr of 240s subs using 6 nm HA clip in filter
Modded T3i ISO 800

Aligned in Pixinsight
Processed in CS5

Thanks for looking!

Best,

George

Most likely slipped down the back of the sofa Haseeb.

I spent a couple of hours last night being frustrated by intermittent cloud, but towards the end it started to look more promising!

This is the best I managed:

Orion Nebula, EOS 550d, 5SE, single exposure, ISO 6400, 15 secs. No editing, I'll leave that to Tel!

Hi Robin,

I've had great fun on and off for a few hours messing about with your original shot of M42 trying out a few P/Shop techniques and combining them. This then is my rendition. Many thanks once for allowing me the practice !

Best regards,
Tel

Thanks Art, I took this widefield M 31 with 200mm f/4l. Lights 60 x 60 secs. For some reason unable to obtain proper darks and light haze didn't help matters.

Fantastic Rosette too George (sorry - gave up trying to post using mi iPhone).

One of the best I've seen - truly spectacular.

Working on M42. Having a crack at layer masking in PS to help with the blown out trapezium.

Milby,

Wow, much improved. The feint nebulosity is fantastic. Core is still a little bright but overall a great effort.

Best,

George

No doubts about that one, George ! A wonderful display of the Rosette ! You're getting too good at this !

(Perhaps next time out, try additionally taking a set of frames using an imaging O111 filter if you have one, and then have some fun using the Hubble Palette to colour)

Best regards,
Tel

Hi Milby,

If that's your first introduction to layering, you've made a splendid job of it, particularly as M42 is not so easy, by reason of its high dynamic range, as one might think.

As George said, the core is a little bright so to this end I've tried to blend it in a little more to the rest of the nebula. What do you think ? Does this work ?

Best regards,
Tel

Wonderful image of M 42, really dynamic looking with loads of detail. Tel's processing is different but reduces the core and gives it a more natural look. Now wish the greens and blues were visible, that would be one heck of a wall paper.
