    Default North America and Pelican Nebula part 2 (Ha & OIII)



    Hi
    You will remember that I started this image just over a week ago in Ha, well I managed to get another clear night to go out imaging in between the cloudy skies and work, I managed to get 8x20 minutes again using the FSQ106ED and Starlight Xpress H36 with a 5nm OIII. A lodestar via OAG was used for guiding with dithering invoked. On the subsequent sub frames there was much less OIII evident than the Ha and what there was showed very little in the way of structural detail but I am sure that it will contribute to the final image. For the blue channel I used 20% Ha added to 100% OIII when colour combining in Maxim DL (not sure if this correct, any suggestions would be appreciated). I am now going to have to wait until at least Sunday to continue with this or the middle of next week, at the moment this target is not available until about 12.30am courtesy of a neighbours tree. The Ha version is on my website http://www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk on the Nebulae 2 page of the image gallery. A full size version will be added to my other website Gordon Haynes's Photo Galleries at pbase.com when I am back at home
    Thanks for looking
    Best wishes
    Gordon

    Thats the best NGC7000 and IC5067/70 I have seen in a good long while Gordon, by a country mile. Lovely detail in the Ha regions showing. Congrats .
