NGC1365 Lum

At this time last year, I imaged this galaxy with my new 150mm APO (using the OSC).

I now have the mono camera.

Last night from 11.30PM to 5AM I could once again track this galaxy right over the top (LUM filter).

It was a beautiful clear night and it was really exciting to see the data coming in.

The attached image is a tight crop of 50 X 5m (about 4 hrs).

Over the next 3 nights I will use the RGB filters and then have a look with Ha.

Can't wait!

Martin (if you read this). I was thinking of you when doing the stretch.

I lost 3618 pixels from clipping, out of 16,389,120 (hires)

Peter,
What else can I say but “ fantastic “ Lum image of this tiny galaxy
All I would do now after capturing your colour data is just some light sharpening to bring out the spirals and core
and add your colour with only light saturation
It’s all there for you to produce an excellent final image
And yes I do notice that your images are slightly black clipped, the interstellar background should not be “ink black”or “jet black”. Black clipping loses valuable data.When the background is zoomed in close to around 150% the pixels should not be all the same black colour and contrast.
Well done for doing the red eye too
Can’t wait to see your final image
Cheers
M.

Thanks M

I always have valued your advice over the years

Thanks Rusty

I will certainly give it a go since the two cameras have the same size array.

It is never ending this game

And since I am on top of the list (at the moment):

All you guys n girls putting something together, maybe for the first time or not, post your work here.

You will always get support and encouragement

One of my fav galaxies. Pretty deep shot and you have a lot of details already. Many faint fuzzies in the back of the field as well. Looking forward to some killer colors

It is always interesting to see everybodys' images, regardless of their level of experience .
You may be sorry you said that though because now I'm tempted to post some of my DS efforts.
By the way , that is a great start to your NGC1365, looking forward to seeing a finished product.

Hi JP, good to see you back!

A lot is happening with this galaxy, Marc is helping me with the processing.

Have a look at his go at my data!

Once again the learning curve just keeps on going and I can't wait to submit the results

Off to an excellent start. A bit of some sort of sharpening will help as well so long as its not overdone.

I remember an old post on this forum from Brad Moore. He found the longer the total exposure the more the data could take sharpening from the simple unsharp mask sharpening tool.

Greg.

Hi Mike, Hi Greg

Sometimes it gets all to complicated.

I go back to basics and walk outside, look up and enjoy the stars.

IIS is the best resource on the planet, and thanks you guys
