View Full Version here: : M16 The Eagles Nest
08-05-2012, 10:50 PM
I was trolling through past images looking for possible submissions for the IIS Calendar and came across an M16 data set from 2009....so I just had to have a play with the processing again :D
I didn't submit it for consideration but this is what I came up with
The Eagles Nest (http://www.pbase.com/strongmanmike2002/image/143179487/original)
Was fun none the less :)

It's astounding what you can do with that Starfire and the Orion AG12.
I dont think I am worthy to view that image. ;)

Worthy? LOL you're worthy :prey2: :thumbsup:
Posting reworked old data is a little boring I know but I'm glad you enjoyed the view Chris.

This was done with the AP150 no?
worthy of the new scope maybe ??
09-05-2012, 12:29 PM
Yes (152 :D) and yes...although not sure the AG12 will hammer the Starfire without some bloody good seeing...that I don't really get from my spot in Newie :sadeyes:. The seeing on the night with the starfire was quite poor too though :question:...The field of view is much larger with the AG12 and new Proline 16803 but then as this cropped image reflects, the interesting bits would be in the middle 1/3 of such a big field anyway.

An awsome image!!
Makes me feel a little inadequate though, oh well I'll keep plodding away and in the next couple of years I might have something half this good!

Very nice one Mike, seasoned ingredients for a fresh dish preparred with your excellent cooking expertise :) I liked the food tasting, now looking for more (e.g. added data from your speedy scope :D)

Nice one Mike. Certainly a great view of the pillars of creation.
09-05-2012, 08:15 PM
Very nice Mike. A very striking shot!:thumbsup:

No need to feel inadequate, you are doing some fine stuff already Justin :thumbsup:
Grazie Marco glad you liked the taste :P
Thanks Steve, oldie but a goodie ;)
Cheers Lucas glad you like it

Who needs Hubble? :D Great shot!
10-05-2012, 07:55 PM
:rofl: I'm sure when Hubble gets retired, Mike will be first in line to carry it back here on his shoulder and plonk that baby down on his mount and fire it back up for some more goodness.....I can send you the Hubble team leader's phone number if you like Mike? ;)

An Aussie forum friend of mine composed this a number of years ago now :question: :lol:

That is so detailed & interesting.
11-05-2012, 06:28 AM
Fine piece of work Mike!
11-05-2012, 08:48 PM
A rebirth of old data is always a buzz, and this was taken in poor conditions , Unreal to see this in such detail Mike ! !
12-05-2012, 10:37 PM
Cheers guys, yes the conditions were indeed below par so it could have been better for sure, will have another crack with the AG12 sometime.

Pretty cool. My absolute fav though was that NB/RGB blend of the Rosette you did a while ago and entered at the star party comp. That's as good as it gets IMHO.
14-05-2012, 12:22 PM
Well thank ya pardner, yes that Rosette has been one of my more popular efforts I guess :thumbsup: :)
