I have often found that the SII images is weaker than the Ha and OIII images causing me to backoff on the Ha and OIII when combining them when using the Hubble palette. For NGC6995, most of the nice details are in the Ha and OIII images. I have tried to put back some of those details by using a Luminosity layer created with the Ha and OIII images. Using PixInsight LE I combined the two images using the maximum pixel values from each, so the combined image has the best detail from each image. I think it is an improvement.<br /><br />1 comment http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12775-ngc6995-narrowband-reprocessed.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12775-ngc6995-narrowband-reprocessed.html Sun, 17 Aug 2014 11:29:35 -0400 the Soap Bubble PN G75.5+1.7 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12774-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html"><img title="SoapBubbleHaLRGB4.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/SoapBubbleHaLRGB4.jpg" alt="SoapBubbleHaLRGB4.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jeffweiss9<br /><br />Description}: 8.3hr HaLRGB Crop of the PN G75.5+1.7 planetary nebula from the full image.

The reasons it was not discovered until recently are given as its faintness and the fact that it is embedded in a diffuse nebula. At a distance of 4000 light years and 5 light years in diameter, its spherical symmetry is considered remarkable and comparable to Abell 39 which is about the same size. NGC6888, the nebula is a shell of gas that is being energized by the strong stellar wind from the Wolf-Rayet star WR 136 which is the bright star at the center of the nebula. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12776-ngc6888-crescent-nebula-and-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12776-ngc6888-crescent-nebula-and-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html Sat, 16 Aug 2014 13:58:51 -0400 NGC6888 Crescent Nebula and the Soap Bubble PN G75.5+1.7 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12773-ngc6888-crescent-nebula-and-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html"><img title="ngc6888HaLRGB4.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/ngc6888HaLRGB4.jpg" alt="ngc6888HaLRGB4.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jeffweiss9<br /><br />Description}: 8.3 hr HaLRGB NGC6888 (Crescent Nebula) and PN G75.5+1.7 (the Soap Bubble) in Cygnus The &quot;Soap Bubble Nebula&quot;, diagonally opposite the Crescent in this image, is a planetary nebula that was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich in 2008.

NGC7293 is only clear of the trees in my backyard for about an hour, so getting all the necessary exposures with the different filters will take awhile. This image shows the Ha image on the left and the OIII on the right. The Ha image used exposures from two nights (5 1x1 binned 600s one night and 5 2x2 binned 600s the second) and the OIII image used exposures from just one night (6 2x2 binned 600s). I will need more OIII exposures, as well as R, G, and B exposures to colorize the stars. I am not sure it I will bother with SII exposures, since the Ha and OIII images should provide colors I would like.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12737-ngc7293-ha-amp-oiii-images.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12737-ngc7293-ha-amp-oiii-images.html Sat, 26 Jul 2014 12:59:44 -0400 image4 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ted-s-astrophotos/p12736-image4.html"><img title="image4.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/1274/thumbs/image4.jpg" alt="image4.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: theolonius<br /><br />Description}: M57 Ring Nebula.

As usual my neighbors (who are awesome) turned off the lights while I imaged. I had to wait an hour for Brocchi's cluster to clear the trees. The asterism has another name &quot;The Coat Hanger&quot; and if you follow the path of the brightest stars, you can see a ladies coat hanger. To the right is a far away open cluster NGC 6802. The coat hanger is not an actual cluster, but rather a chance alignment of stars. This image is composed of 80 images of 60 seconds each. 20 darks and 20 flats were also taken. Camera was an SBIG8300C, scope was an 80MM EON (F6.25). An IDAS LPS filter was also used.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/night-sky-images/p12722-broochi.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/night-sky-images/p12722-broochi.html Fri, 18 Jul 2014 16:06:17 -0400
