Had another unexpected session tonight so I decided to go back to some narrow band. Revisited and old favorite in the Wizard Neb. Was hoping for another all nighter but alas the clouds rolle

Had another look at this with fresh eyes. Still doesn't look quite right 😕      

Patchy cloud but sadly too much for 600 second subs. Will have to pick this up later.   Thanks Clive for solving this one. No wonder I had such a hard time processing it to Hubble

nice data but you seem to have a greenish hubble there 😊

 

Your right there Sheila

I will have to have another go at this. 😉

can stack  separate data in DSS  but when i load up in startools stars not aligned ie how can i align the three stacks together so stars match or do you have a single fits file graham of all three combined then i can pull channels separately using startools ? Looks nice too though seem to have some walking noise anomally obviously my stacking is rubbish and no colour trying to stack in dss

I do that in Photoshop David as separate layers.

Each layer is  either --  HA , OIII or SII  and each layer is a different colour -- R, G or B

You can move each layer about independently of the others to align the images.

Once aligned and colour adjusted the layers are merged to create the final colour image.

Never used Star tools.

I had no problem stacking them in DSS, I just chose one Ha image to be the reference frame when individually stacking the images for each filter. The problem I've got is all 3 images are virtually identical so applying them to the RGB layers just gives a grey image (just a hint of colour on the satellite trail on one of the images).

I stack in Maxim so no alignment issues as it does it automatically

 

That is exactly the issue I had Clive.

very little to choose from the different channels.

Yes, I did wonder if I was stacking the same images by mistake so I tried subracting the OIII from the Ha and the SII from the Ha and apart from a few rings caused by slighty different sized stars in the 3 images, the result was a black image. You may as well just use the Ha image in each colour channel 😕!

 Interesting to hear Clive.

Going to check the camera filter wheel settings on Maxim tomorrow

 

It did strike me as strange with the little difference in the subs as they came in but trusted the fact that Maxim was telling me the filters were changing.

Hold the front page.

Capture settings were not changing the filter wheel.

Clive you are spot on all 18 subs are in HA.

Glad I put the data up for you folks to have a play with or I might not have found it.

Nice piece of detective work Clive 👌

Fault found.

The filter selection settings had changed so all filters were set as HA.

The file prefix for each filter however had not changed so in the capture window it was telling me that the file prefixes were changing but sadly the filters were not.

 

That's a new one on me as it has never happened before when I was using the old XP computer.

Will have to keep an eye on that in the future.
