Wide field images

Postby edward-fraini » Mon Sep 19, 2016 9:57 am

I have decided that if I wait to put out an image till I am "perfect" it is never going to happen. So I have posted my recent attempts knowing they will get better with time and I am open to all suggestions for improvement.
So far I have not been able to successfully stack RGB with Lum but I kinda like the the Lum all by itself.

AstroBin is a good cheap place to post up your work for others to see. Try this link.

I really like the HorseHead and M7 image. I, for some reason really prefer the b&w images better than most color deep sky stuff. It might be because I see most faint fuzzies and clusters in B&W. I was wondering how deep you got in the M7 shot.

Not sure what you mean by deep. I took 60 minutes of exposure in 2 min subs. I was rushed the night I did the Barnard 171 and had only 30 min worth of data and I plan to re shot it with a longer time. Totally agree with you on B&W. I will continue to do more of those.
