Hi guys!

 

The weather has been so and so, but i managed to get 8½ hours of subs on the flaming star - i'm surprized it's so faint.

 

Anyway, it's composed of 5 and 10min subs mostly 10min subs, total 8½ hours.

 

Processed in PS, DSS, Fitswork and pixinsight light. I tried not to push it too much, so i'm fairly satisfied with the result :)

 

C&C very welcome :D

I have been wanting to nab this one. I have been at this for a year now, and …. well I feel I am ready to try it. 

 That's a lot of hours of info! 

I hope my guiding works well tonight. At least it is in the east so the mount should track the best. OH... It's actually CLEAR too...WHHHOOOPEEEEE!!!!

 

 Great work!

Thanks Tom Hsmile.gif

 

@Apollo - i find that it is very faint, even the central "flame" is hard to spot on a single 5min sub, hence i went up to ten min subs, i think i need double the time to make the image really good, but i've got another target in mind now, and the weather here is...confused1.gif tongue2.gif

I can draw out the Blues no problem...and some very patchy reds with my 10 minute subs. What camera are you using? When I looked at your photos. Mine looks like the flaming star shot that is down a ways in your photos. That thing needs a ton of time to get it pretty. I may need a little bigger light bucket than an 80mm ed scope...IF I want to shorten my time on it 😆.

I'm not sure why you're having such problems with "The Flaming Star". For me, it's a bright, easy target.

 

I've only shot it one time, using my little AT65 EDQ in a howling 25-30mph wind storm. I could only salvage 1 hr of subs, but THIS is what I captured, despite the conditions.
