    Default NGC7380 with new QHY128C in narrowband



    I recently received a QHY128C OSC camera to test and since the moon was bright I decided to test how well/IF this OSC camera could capture narrowband (Ha/OIII). The results were surprising and encouraging.

    This image of NGC7380 has 4hrs Ha and 4.5hrs OIII captured with the 128C and my CFF250RC. RGB color data was supplied by a QHY163M and SV80ST.

    Great capture mixing two camera's data. (QHY128C and QHY163M)

    I use my ATIK 4120EX OSC with narrowband and I am happy with the results. I think having such a high megapixel helps as one is generally only using 1/4 for Ha etc.

    I would like to see this QHY128 mono version used the same way to compare.

    Yes, when capturing Ha with an OSC I only used the "red" channel from the camera. This is why I was quite pleased with the result. I'm only using 1/3 of the camera for Ha (2/3 for OIII - combining the "G" and "B" channels for the OIII). And yet the results in Ha were very close to what I get with my G3-16200 mono camera.

    Thanks all. Yes, it is nice when an idea I have works out...because it doesn't always!
