    Default IC 5070, The Pelican Nebula in HOO



    Greetings. No new data for the mosaic but I did shoot some new flats, darks, and bias frames. I was using flats from over a year ago and the camera has been off the scope a couple of times and now there is an OAG in the imaging train. I was successful in using the flats with my recent imaging runs, which kind of debunks the myth about keeping everything the same when shooting your flats. Here is a HOO rendition of my Pelican data. Thanks for looking.

    Imaged over multiple nights in Jul and Aug 17
    ES 102ED with 0.8 FF/FR atop a CEM60 and Atik 383L+ (-10C)
    Captured with SGP
    Ha: 6x600 secs Bin 1x1 > Red and also Luminance
    Oiii: 6x600 secs Bin 2x2 > Green
    Oiii: 6x600 secs Bin 2x2 > Blue

    That image is really coming together to be a real beauty. Very nice.

    And thanks for you experience with the flats. I often wonder about that myself.

    Clears,

    Very nice Scott! This color combination brings out the Herbig-Haro object just a little above and to the right of the Pelican's "eye". Well done.

    Thanks Brad. I like using the HOO palette as it gives a good approximation of RGB but with better details.

    Great detail and color, Scott. Thinking about this guy for my next session, once I check how big it is.
