Blue Horsehead from AF19

17 hours of the Blue Horse head using the Samyang 135mm at F2.8 and QHY10

Processed with Pixinsight and Captured with SGP

I found the focus point quite critical at F2.8 so some of the subs were a little softer than i would have liked. Might try motorizing the rig amd see if that helps.

Suggestions welcome, thanks for looking

Geoff

An excellent example of great astrophotography.

Accurate colour, great dynamic range (while still respecting the light) and photogenic framing.

Well done

Was hoping you'd put this up soon Geoff. Fantastic work - looks even more amazing in the full res version than the glimse at AF. You must be very happy indeed with this one.

Hey Rob, yep really happy with the end result. I did rework it in Pixinsight as i found a few "soft" subs

Cheers Geoff

A great image composition and processing. I find with my (14mm) Samyang f2.8 lens that I need to stop it down three stops to f5.6 to avoid some of the lens aberration. Helps with the focusing as well. Thanks for posting

Absolute cracker! I know you've been wanting to do that for a while, and the time spent on data shows in the awesome result mate!

Thanks mate, was an interesting project.

Very happy with the results, looking to auto focus the lens for the next run

Just a beautiful image, Geoff. Love the blues and the ghostly form of the horse's head - quite mesmerising! Nu Scorpii, by the way, is a septuplet star, (I always find that to be amazing too)Well done.
Cheers,
Richard
