I am proud to publish the first picture taken with my RC10 at the new dark location where I set my new observatory, it's two hours by car close to Barcelona city at Spain.

 

 

tadpoles-nebula-ic410-close-up-in-sii-h%

 

I used a ASI1600 with AStrodon filters on a Altair Astro RC250-TT 10" RC Truss Tube, Riccardi reducer and Astro-Physics Mach1 GTO mount.

 

It's a little bit more that 26 hours of integration.

 

Here you find the links to Astrobin and Flickr where is all the info

Looking good! Nice and detailed, color gradient is great. It looks like you have a fair amount of purple artifacts. To correct the purple stars, if you use PixInsight...you can invert the image, use SCNR to nuke the green by about 50-70%, then invert again. You may also try inverting, nuking green 50%, invert and create a star mask, then invert again, apply the mask, and nuke green around just the stars by 70-100%. That might help take care of some of the blotchy magenta in the details, and then better-correct the magenta in the stars.

Very nicely done!  Jon is right but I still kinda like the purple artifacts.

Thank you Jon for the advice, I will try that soon (currently I am on a business trip) and I will publish the results to compare.

I like it too, but I will try to reduce them, just to compare with this, and also many thank you for your comment John.

Jon, I take some time and I did what you advice me, but not so much, with the star mask practically 100 but not for the other details. 

Here is the result

I hope you like it, I tried to keep some of the details with purple also, I like this version more than the original one, thank you so much for your comment...

Excellent image carballada!

 

(The slivery threads of magenta/red were part of what I liked in the original.  They give the central part of the image a nice accent).

Thank you! I like also to keep some magenta on the centre of the images, for that reason I tried to keep it on the new version and reduce only the purple on the stars. I made only 4 versions before to choose this one :)
