Noel reprocessed the Veil nebula data making the stars less obtrusive and sharpening up the nebulosity a little to emphasize the filaments. It’s a personal choice as to which version you prefer – I like the down-played stars myself.
Today is a landmark day for the New Forest Observatory. After a marathon processing session involving a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and a hallucination-inducing lack of sleep – Noel Carboni has just finished processing the Summer 2007 mega-project, the … Continue reading
The accompanying image shows the Rosette nebula in the infrared (720nm – 1,000nm) part of the spectrum. The image is composed of 7 subs at 1600 seconds per sub, just over 3-hours total exposure time – and – there’s virtually nothing … Continue reading
The constellation Cancer is quite well placed during March, and Cancer contains a couple of very nice open clusters that make excellent imaging objects, namely M44 the Beehive cluster or Praesepe or NGC2632, and M67 [NGC2682] which doesn’t seem to … Continue reading
Noel is getting all the data prepared for the coffee-table book and is now mopping up stuff from last year. Here we have an updated image of M31. The basis of this image was actually first light for the M25C … Continue reading
The fourth image in the 6-night marathon is M78 and part of Barnard’s Loop in Orion. This is a work in progress as so far this is only 4 hours of RGB data using 15-minute subs – and with an … Continue reading
The third image from the 6-night session is the first single-star image I have taken with the Sky 90/SXVF-M25C combination. This is Procyon – and the image comprises 48 sub-exposures at 5-minutes per sub or exactly 4 hours total exposure … Continue reading
The second image from the 6-night marathon session this month is a nice pair of open clusters in Gemini – M35 and NGC2158. This image comprises 39 sub-exposures at 6-minutes per sub or just 6-minutes short of 4-hours in total.
We have just had six clear nights in a row – which for me personally is an all-time record! Got a few reasonable images during this period, unfortunately last couple of days had the Moon intruding, but we can’t have … Continue reading
