    Default Thor's Helmet NGC 2359



    Finally got some Oiii last night to combine with previous RGB and Ha data on the Helmet. This object is rather low in the sky for my latitude, but caught it at transit. Sky was a bit hazy and very cold, 20F. Lots of various colors in this thing and, depending of personal preference, you could process to any color desired. This thing is big too, really doesn't all fit in the bigdog fov.

    Specifics, Meade 16 LX200 at f6.2, Atik460ex mono camera, 6/5 min Ha, 10/5 min Oiii, 2/5 min RGB all 2x2 binned. OAG with QHY5L-II at 4 sec rate. Captured and stacked in Nebulosity, Darks applied. Post in PS-CS5 with Carboni tools, final processing layer stack consist of RGB, Ha for luminance, Oiii color lighten, Ha color screen mode. Ha and Oiii color applied without stars.

    Hope the link works,


    Clear skies,
    Steve

    Thanks, but I think it looks more like that Martian running away in the War of the Worlds movie from the '50s.

    Nice colors in that image, and the close-up scaling is really nice. Good job.
