Re: Medium-wide fields 2020

Puppis rises high before day break. So many celestial jewels in this milky way constellation! M46, M47 and some more https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3eFg7ntrycX9gbIOR869nx9Mw9jmM89qMrhodFkxzqyhNGI5Wb3i4Jwvgkp7QnBnx7w8kEx2oTvYoW2uCJacoUX8Ef6bJwHv8jTZXE4NFtbi4Ueoa9s4kq_LwH16g4RKzCoWZp0vjaVS...

Re: Medium-wide fields of Milky Way 2020

Quite a good amount of nebulosity in both M16 and M17. I can see a bit of the pillars of creation in the eagle nebula.
The mild purple fringing around the stars can be easily fixed in Lightroom.

Re: M33 a difficult target for a camera lens, M45 the Pleiades, and the M36-M38 field

Wow! Very nice work on M33, do you have an image on a single sub for comparison? At what time did you image it?

Re: Eagle Nebula M16 and Omega Nebula M17

Nice shot with plenty of interesting objects! The star points are sharp n clean. Did you stop down the lens or just use the full aperture? Thanks! I used it wide open at F2 to maximise the amount of light collection. I find the star shape pretty good wide open although I have not tried stopping it ...

Re: Medium-wide fields of Milky Way 2020

Haha I was aiming to shoot the perseus double clusters last night too, but too tired to stay up any later. I settled with M16 and M17 which was high up.
Did you manage to catch the ring nebula in Lyra?

Eagle Nebula M16 and Omega Nebula M17

Another unexpected clear night. Imaged another part of the milky way containing the Eagle and Omega Nebulae. Tried manual dithering in RA and DEC, also tried out new method to take flats. Walking noise not seen now, not sure whether it's due to the dithering or the dense star field. View plate-solve...

Re: Medium-wide fields of Milky Way 2020

Nice couple of star clusters. I think it might be possible to bring out more of the galactic core if you stretch it more? The exact galactic centre is just 1deg beyond the right side border of the image. I almost captured it. If my lens was slighter shorter, or my image sensor was full-frame. Do yo...

Re: Wide fields Scorpius

Ah you attempted the rho ophiuchi too. It looks way better than mine. I can see a small hint of h-alpha in it. It also looks like you're getting the same issues that I have, walking noise. Are you doing any dithering?

Re: The Andromeda Galaxy M31

re-edit, managed to pull out abit more details of the outer spiral arms. I think it's a good compromise between details and noise.
Adjusted white balance for a more cooler tone.
