Hello to everyone,

 

I would like to share with you my first Bicolor image done with narrowband filters.

Taken from the AstroAtlas Observatory situated in Noventa di Piave (ITALY), this is my bicolor version of NGC6992. I acquired it using the Optolong H-a and OIII filters

I am very happy of this result which is my really first time I use the Bicolor technique.
I have acquired the H-a data during almost full moon (about 96%).
 

I hope you like it!

 

Technical Information:

Telescope: AIRY APO 130T PrimaLuceLab
Mount: Paramount MyT - Software Bisque
Camera: QHYCCD QHY9
Filter: Optolong H-a 7nm, OIII 6.5nm
Frames: H-a: 48x900s -- OIII: 26x900s
Total Integration: 18.5 Hours
Software: SGP – TheSkyX – PHD2 – DSS – PixInsight – CS6
Location: Noventa di Piave (Venice) 4 meter above sea level – ITALY

Stay well,

Thank you so much, Mert! 

 

Starnet helped me a lot to highlight the datails.. the processing without the stars is helpful in my opinion.

 

Thanks again and clear skies,

 

Francesco
