View Full Version here: : M16 Mass Luminance
12-07-2012, 10:47 AM
Just thought I'd combine everything from my recent M16 data into a single mass luminance ie the Ha OIII SII and RGB all sandwiched together and I think the outcome looks ok..so meeah, thought I'd post it :)

I like it - it looks nice, crisp and clear! :thumbsup:

What a field. So much going on around the hero of the dish (the pillars). I loves it:thumbsup:

Man there's some serious nebulosity going on in this image!!
The coat hanger/ loop looks like three dimensional time tunnel, that would be four dimensions I suppose.
Thanks for sharing Mike.

Hey, thanyou for looking :thumbsup:
There is much more to M16 than the Pillars and the seeing wasn't on my side on the night but here is what they look like in this image at 100% resolution THE PILLARS (http://www.pbase.com/strongmanmike2002/image/144692548/original)

Very good Mike. Lots of detail and a fabulous wide view.

Nice image Mike, it is encouraging to see details in there that show up in my image that I took a few weeks ago.

An amazing photo Mike.
The amount and quality of nebulosity and detail is so impressive.
Great composition and I love the B&W.

Cheers mate, yeh I recon it demonstrates the power and versatility of this combination...just needs darker steadier skies really....coming soon in rural Canberra ;)
Hi Pete, yep you got some in there for sure :thumbsup:
Thanks Ross, I am very excited about getting this rig in my OWN backyard under dark steady rural Canberra skies :prey:

That looks absolutely fantastic Mike, and the FOV is so large that one almost have to scan around looking for the pillars :lol: Will you combine this luminance with the colour data?

Thanks Rolfo :thumbsup:
Well I have done an RGB like rendition (http://www.pbase.com/strongmanmike2002/image/144236488/original)already so haven't actually tried with this new Lum specifically...hmmm? maybe I should :question: not sure if there would be much difference though...another repro! Yay! :lol:.......:scared3:

that is a wonderful image, its great to pan around and see the detail, the scope and camera you use gives excellent results
also b&w gives a very clear look at the detail without being distracted by colour

That's deep Mike, excellent, and well, certainly WIDE. Dunno about the pillars close in though, there's an urge to zoom extra on that view , not entirely satisfactory IMO, but given the WW aspect of the original pic, that's an awesome effort.

Thanks so much Richard, without a permanent setup and a somewhat complicated imaging rig, not a lot of imaging gets done soooo I do get bored between sessions :) Tinkering with previous data helps pass the time. This Sun night looks good and I have permission from my employer, in advance, to take Mon off I need to :D
Hello Fred long time no hear :shrug: :sadeyes: Well that is 100% res crop but yes the urge is there. I am confident if I get some good seeing that urge will be significantly reduced. We are moving back to Canberra to a rural location (hopefully) very soon and I am excited about the possibilities, here in Newie it is crap seeing virtually every night :rolleyes:...Sunday will be another test..hopefully :thumbsup:.

Your FOV is very impressive Mike. Pulling out a small centre section as you have done is a testament to your optics quality. The cropped section looks very detailed considering it's relative proportion to the whole fields size. About 1/25th perhaps, or a little smaller may be?
Hey, a repro is fun to do and cheaper than looking at new software or hardware! ;)
17-07-2012, 07:51 PM
That looks awesome Mike!

Yeh not bad Steve huh? On a 5000ft mountain in the Chilean dessert would be good though :P
Thanks Louie, always tinkering :)
