View Full Version here: : M16 first HaLRGB attempt
07-08-2012, 10:03 PM
With all this great weather I've been able to gather quite a bit of LRGB and Ha data of M16. This is my first attempt at blending some narrowband data into the LRGB image - not sure if I'm doing this right but having quite a bit of fun experimenting at this stage. This image is 12x10 mins Ha blended with 28x5mins Lum (67%/33%) and 6x5mins RGB taken over two nights using the QSI683 and 10" Newt.
Comments and advice welcomed.
Thats a really nice image Peter. You have pulled out some fine detail. Not qualified to give advice, suspect there are others better able to on this forum but a great first. I like it.

Thanks David. It's a steep learning curve this mono imaging. Great to get someone else's perspective.

Interesting and promising experiment, Peter. I'm still struggling valiantly with Ha blending so I'm not offering advice either :) How come you didn't add any Ha to your Red?

Lovely resolution of the fine details. I was also thinking you could add some Ha to R channel.

Lovely shot Pete - there is so much going on there

Thanks Rick - no reason I didn't add Ha to red apart from I'm still trying to work out what I should be doing with it.
Cheers Troy - will give that a try today.
Thanks Peter. The longer exposures sure make a big difference.

Your photo looks great, though, like the others, it is an area of imaging I haven't had the courage yet to attempt.
