    Default M's 8 and 20 in NB/RGB Combination



    Hey all,
    I've been collecting additional photons on this pair in NB, hoping to complete it, but the weather is just not cooperating.
    So, here's what I have so far....
    The original RGB image was mated with 14x600 SII frames, as well as 7X600 Ha frames.
    Sent through the spin cycle in PixInsight a few times.
    I still need at least a few more Ha subs, as well as the OIII data... but you get the idea...
    Shot through the Kson and imaged with the Deep Space CCD
    Balanced on the CG-5 and guided with the SSAG

    M8_M20_26x300RGB_14x600SII_7x600Ha small.jpg


    Thanks for looking!
    Jim

    Thanks guys!
    This weather is making it so difficult to get anything worthwhile..
    I've set up twice this past week and both times ended up tearing down without a single frame to show for my troubles...
    *sigh*

    Very interesting Jim - The narrow-band imaging gives these familiar targets a completely new look. Nicely done!

    Most of us can relate to the "setup then tear down - without a single frame (or just a few jpg's for alignment/exposure)". Please add my *sigh* to yours.
