Hello again :)

 

Still got the gear so the run of clear nights got me out under the stars. And I fell in love with Astrophotography again.

This was more of a software/hardware/user shakedown than anything else having not used the gear for 18 months. I forget stuff easily. I also had to reinstall all the control software onto a new laptop.

 

Anyway enough of the rambling...

 

Rosette nebula.

9x600s ISO 800. Canon 450d. Processed in Pixinsight.

 

Fit file (if you want to have a play with the data) is in Dropbox.

Is there a link to Dropbox file Paul

Great image Paul.

Even better if you have processed in Pixlnsight.

Keep trying it but just cannot get my head round it. :respect:

Graham, the DBE tool is probably the most effective part of Pixinsight.

I still stack/calibrate in Neb 4 as it's more intuitive (for me).

 

The biggest problem getting going this time was finding a driver that worked with the original QHY5 on Windows 10!

 

I've got my eye on this little beauty https://www.firstlightoptics.com/william-optics/william-optics-zenithstar-61-apo.html

Always been a widefield fan and this will play beautifully :)

Oh yes David. It will be red. I use a modded 45OD/Astronomik 12nm Ha filter.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder . Your version is a little on the dark side for my taste ;)

What kept you away for so long?

 

If I go a week without seeing or photographing anything, I start going loopy, or maybe just even more loopy than I am already.

My scope went out last night and I'm stacking 221 supermoon images as I type. Quite often my DSLR goes out without a scope, especially if it's clear and moonless.
