Yep, the 12 pups have yet to open their eyes but have almost started to walk and are already yapping. So cute!

Oh dear, I better go, will return in a month or so for more fun.

In this post I have been called a: narcissistic Fu..er, contrite, pompas, to F....off, privelidged snob & bored troll (the latter by you)

But, all I did (publically) was point out
1) Mike had taken a nice image and
2) I thought (and still think) the h-alpha data is wrong....AND pointed to the pro-research images to support why I came to that conclusion AND stated I didn't think anything shifty was going on...but wondered if Mike had made a processing error.

Your throwing my private comments out there does not phase me in the slightest....the public abuse did not come from me....maybe re-read what was said & have a long hard look in the mirror.

I wonder if you could do a processing version of that data that would show the shell structure like you did with your AP152 data and the data from Rolf.

I did dig around but the data just wouldn't reveal them well and no version looked good to me when I tried enhancing them so I stuck with the more traditional glowing ball look. The main shells are just noticeable but not the inner ones that Rolf extracted

Welcome to the long imaging club Mike. Lots to like in this image. Me personally I really like the IFN (it's all over the place), the back ground galaxies, the preponderance of stars, even the extended shape of the halo of Centaurus A. You can see the shells but faintly too. Colour of the stars and the background is near perfect in my opinion. Though I am not sure about the saturation of the Ha. It looks a little too much to me,

Overall a great image. I don't think there is any doubt that you captured the Ha jet well, least not in my opinion. Maybe your signal is a bit more blurred and that is what is looks like there might be more?

It's got me thinking about a future project myself with the AG12. Like I said there is lots to like in this image.

Thanks Paul, glad you enjoyed the view, it is an unusual perspective on this often imaged galaxy and no other image, that I can find, shows all the aspects revealed here.

Regarding the Ha jet, you are absolutely spot on with your assessment, it is pretty obvious , the (spiteful) roll over only served to reinforce this

Yes, I can imagine what you might be planning, there are some options there

Mike

The Ha jet for me is the most spectacular aspect of this image. its pretty amazing really and I think its also a commentary on just how superb FSQ106 EDX optics are and how good the Proline is.

Also I recall Rick doing a Cent A not that long ago with an FSQ85 that showed the Ha jet very well also. It'd be worth a look at his rendition again.

Greg.

Cheers Greg, was happy to pick it up so well, its pretty long! Given it's apparent length in my image is around 0.5 deg, at the 13 Million light year distance to Cen A, that's over 100,000 light years long, or about the whole distance across the Milky Way!

Couldn't find it at his Astrobin pages, his CDK17 shot is there showing the jet but nothing with an FSQ85 that I could see

Just posted a close up of the relativistic jet emanating from the super massive black hole at the centre of Centaurus A.

The faintest extremities of Ha revealed in my data are some 30 arc min from the centre of Centarus A which means material is being ejected well over 100,000 light years out into Cen A's outer galactic halo, or the equivalent of the width of the entire Milky Way

Just amazing!...and no roll overs please, this ain't bloody noise!

Mike

Those closeups look amazing, I could not see anything at first then it appeared quite clearly. Quite an achievement, 52 hours is pretty dedicated for one image but reducing that noise is essential for such faint extending detail. For an amateur rig the result is phenomemal.
