Vela & Puppis A SNR

Mosaic of 4 panels each between 1-5 hours of Ha and O3 monochrome data. Intended to get more data but weather over last 6 months has been poor to terrible with very few long sessions possible. Shot with MFT version of Samyang f/2 135 mm lens and ASI533MM Pro with the filter inside an adaptor. Processing was in PI and gimp. I tried to emphasise the brighter stars (10 mins of RGB per panel) to make up for the noisy background.

Slightly better resolution here:


The mosaic includes the Puppis A SNR on the right hand side...I have included a separate image of this, that I took with my f/6 360mm refractor earlier this year for interest. All imaging done in B6.

Thanks Dave/Alex.

Yes, theres a lot to image in that area. Its such a wide dynamic range of colour/contrast its difficult to get right and I dont think I have yet even after loads of attempts. The brightest part sits in a darker background and is easier to process/looks better by itself (see attachment).
