hi all,

this is my rendition or the crescent in narrowband, finally got my S2 data, so this is SHaS (RGB channels respectively)

camera was a HX916, but I'm now saving for either an Atik 383l+m or 460exm As the chip isn't big enough for what I want to do. 

Filters were baader 35nm Ha and 8nm SII baader filter. 

Hope you like it

Hi Cam,

That is a fabulous image. You've got the structure in the nebula really coming out well along with some background nebulosity. What exposure was the image, and was this taken with your Williams Optics 81mm?

Best wishes,

Andy

Nice image with a huge amount of detail, Cam. You seem to be mastering narrow band imaging. Best of luck with your search for a larger format CCD.

Thanks for sharing.

All the best,

Jeremy

Thanks to both of you kind gents,

the exposure was roughly 180mins in 10 min subs worth of Ha and the S2 was 150mins in 5 min subs  and yes it was taken with the GT81

next step is automate the filter wheel, best get saving for an SX one I think!
