Re: NGC 6995/6992 in HOO with starcolor thist ime

Hi Freddy, at first: congratulations to your new scope! That's no toy :thumbsup: ! (I revisited your thread on CN.) And I thought, you already had high end equipment ;) As for your image: the dimensions are quite small. Looking at the filename (Medium) I assume, that you have a higher resolution ver...

Re: vdb 152

Hi Stefan, you are doing really crazy things ;) But I agree, these are very interesting objects and the result you got is quite impressive. :thumbsup: Maybe I found some information about the nebula you asked for: https://www.spaceimages.de/astrofotos/nebel/vdb-152 (I'm sorry, it's in German. But to...

Re: First Light EOS 2000D Astro Modification – Western Veil :)

I realized you sometimes just have to find a way to include the brightest and baddest star inside the ROI, in order to keep it under control. Yes, I think it's a good sign when two guys independently come to the same conclusion :) ?! Unless both have made the same mistake :lol: . just some more of ...

The Eastern Veil

Hi all, just for the sake of completeness … the Eastern Veil :) This was my second run with the modified camera and the new L-eNhance filter. There was no dew or fog that night, but other things didn't go so well. Actually I was heading for another target, but I failed to find it (I don’t have a go-...

Re: The Western Veil

Hi Stefan, that's so difficult ... most times I have the same problem and it is hard to decide what is overcooked or not. Sometimes it helps to wait some days and to judge later once again. And I'm always glad to hear the opinion of the others here in the forum. Most times that helps a lot to get a ...

Re: First Light EOS 2000D Astro Modification – Western Veil :)

Hi Mike, thank you :) Once again you left me speechless :lol:. I just started with narrowband processing and I was pretty proud that things went that well for me. And now I must try to understand what you wrote down. Joking aside, thanks for that, I will try to follow your suggestions, but right now...

Re: First Light EOS 2000D Astro Modification – Western Veil :)

Hi Stefan, thank you for your reply and for your kind words :) I used AutoDev with ROI like so: 2022-08-03 19_25_45-StarTools.png And I dropped Shadow Linearity down to 25%. But finding the right curve is sometimes still a problem for me and so I did a little postprocessing with darktable – but only...

First Light EOS 2000D Astro Modification – Western Veil :)

Hi all, since I was often annoyed by missing reds with my unmodified EOS 2000D, I decided to do a full spectrum modification (please see below). And I also bought an L-eNhance duo-band filter to get access to all those beautiful nebula targets. For first light, I headed for the Western Veil. Everyon...

Re: The Western Veil

Hi Stefan, the OIII parts of Witch's Broom look awesome! The fine details really seem to glare, absolutely fascinating, I could watch at them for hours. And it is not that bad, that the fainter parts of the nebula apart from Witch's Broom are a bit blurred and desaturated, this leads the eye of the ...
