    Default My Christmas card to the group The Cone and Christmas Tree Cluster in HaRGB



    Hey all,
    I was finally able to use my new 7nm Ha filter the other night!
    Looking for a target, and realizing I hadn't seen any of this one yet...

    Cone and Christmas Tree HaRGB small .jpg

    The Cone Nebula, Christmas Tree Cluster, and Hubble's Variable Nebula
    Here's 2 hrs of 600 sec, Ha exposures, mated to an hour of 300 sec RGB subs.
    Shot through the Kson and starshoot
    Preprocessed in Maxim DL
    Post Processing in PI

    Merry Christmas, Everyone!

    Here's the Ha version...

    For only 2 hrs, it's not bad. I could use another 2 on it, but I haven't had that much sky in weeks...
