View Full Version here: : Eta Carina Central quickie
26-07-2012, 08:42 PM
SPX350 F4.5, ATK-16HR, Astrodon Ha OIII filters.
Only had an hour to get this over the roof so I did not have time to collimate the scope as I left it too late back in May.
Bi colour combine with artificial green.

Very Hubble like :) :thumbsup: Out of interest did you use Ha(R)HaOiii(G)Oiii(B) to get the green? If yes what ratios? Thanks.

Thanks Marc, I use anywhere from 23-30pc O3 with Ha in a layer this was probably 25pc. It seems to give the stars an RGB effect with yellows, whites and blues and Eta turned out orange so this works out well. Adding a separate RGB gives large stars which you don't always want in a busy nebula.
The percentage of O3 used depends how strong O3 data is and it was strong in the central Eta Carina area.
Sorry should be 25pc Ha 75pc OIII for synthetic Green !

Thanks a lot for the detailled explanations mate. I wish all the top guys took notice and were as forth coming as you are when asked for processing tips. Good on you. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Great result John, and only 1 hour exposure!, plenty of detail and colour
well done, is this the beginning of a project?

Sorry Marc got it the wrong way around its 75pc OIII and 25pc Ha. Layers get confusing in terms of what goes into what as I don't tend to think about it these days much.

Thanks again John - I've shot a lot of Ha and Oiii over the years but not much Sii. Will revisit some of my old shots and try out your method. :thumbsup:
