Leo Triplet

IC 405 / Flaming Star Nebula

M106 / NGC 4258

My take on the Leo Triplet. In all my wisdom i decided to try to get better balance in the daytime, not thinking this through has resultet in even more spikes on my stars and misaligned frames! :) Fortunately a good friend helped me stack and calibrate the data so i could make a final picture after all :) Thank you for your help Xplode! :)IC 405, or "Flaming Star Nebula" has been shot over two nights back in January, and was meant as a part of a mosaic, but due to time and weather is unable to start the other panels, so i went on to process this one. The picture consists of Ha, R, G & B. I've used the Ha as luminance and a bit in the red channel as well. Unfortunately i was unable to create a proper starmask (i'm using a reflector, so star masks are hard to get right, at least for me) So some of the bright stars have a little halo around them from the RGB data, and the star colors are a but off. But i hope you like itFinally i got some clear skies! I dont think i've been able to do any photography since december! The seeing was rather bad, like always here in Denmark, and the skies didnt go away as fast as i'd hoped, but i got some imaging done! Here you have m 106 and some friends, i hope you like it :) I tried using drizzle x2 for the first time, not for any particular reason other than me being corious :)

Lunar Sail

M45 - The Seven Sisters

Double Cluster in Perseus

Just a quick little lunar shot before starting the nights real imaging run.M45 also known as "The Seven Sisters" This data has been sitting on my PC for 6 months now, I messed up the flats and couldn't take new ones. So getting a good flat field was very problematic. The data was acquired during some very wet nights sometime in the fall so overall it is not great data. Just wanted to get this troublesome image out and away so I can get to some more interresting data. :)This is an image of the Double Cluster in constellation Perseus. These clusters are approximately 7500 lightyears away, but approaching us at a rate of around 38-39 km/s. Each cluster contains about 300 blue/white supergiants. The age is estimated to be around 12,8 million years old, which in astronomical tearms are very young. The data was captured while waiting for my real target, The Pleiades to rise over the roof of the neighbours house. Unfortunately it was extremely moist that night, and both guiding and image quality suffered from it. Very basic edit of this data was performed in PixInsight. WBPP for calibration and stacking using darks, flats and flatdarks. DBE on each master. RGB combination. Photometric color calibration. TGV and MMT denoising. Multiple rounds of Histrogram Transformation (stretch). Desaturate background with curves. Multiple rounds of Curves for contrast boost and color tweaking and saturation. Morphological Transformation with Erosion to soften stars and bring some more color into them. Resample to 50% for webposting. 80xR @ 30s Unity gain 80xG @ 30s Unity gain 80xB @ 30s Unity gain

McNeils Nebula

BAA has reported McNeils nebula as missing. As you can see, it's all gone.
