July Imaging Challenge - M20 (Trifid Nebula)

Hi all.

We'd love you to take part in the July Imaging Challenge. Please post your deep-space images of M20 in this thread. Discussions about the images can also be in this thread.

Please ensure the image obeys the image posting guidelines when you attach them.

While it would be nice if the image were taken in the month of July, it's not essential so feel free to post older images if you're unable to take some new ones.

For observation reports and sketches of the object, see the "Space & Astronomy Talk" forum

Hi all
heres last nights effort on the Triffid, this time using a Lumicon 1.25 inch Deep Sky filter. 1 x 9 min ISO 1600 shot with the 10 inch F5.6 scope and EOS300d, badly light polluted sky with smoke from fireplaces. http://www.users.on.net/~josiah/temp...%20deepsky.jpg

Wow Scott, you've really got that 300D humming. Every shots a winner Did you reduce noise using Neatimage? Looks a touch soft, not blurry or soft focus at all, it just seems to me to be short a bit of crispness. Or is that from the smokey skies?

Many thanks. No I didnt use any noise reduction. However I now reprocessed it, adding a 2nd 400 sec. shot at ISO 200, stacked them, dark subtracted and then used Noiseware community edition to smooth out noise.

I uploaded it as same file name so the link in my first post will lead to this new improved version

oops, I meant the 2nd shot I stacked with the first is a ISO 800 shot, NOT iso 200.

Many thanks. My mount is left permenently set up in the back yard (properly covered when not in use), so that it is nicely polar aligned, alls I need to do is put the scope on it and Im ready to go, sadly this means I cant access the northern sky for the north american and veil, however I will have a crack at the Gum when I can
