Re: Perseus Double Cluster

Thanks for the update, Brian. Well, we have all rushed at times and failed to focus or especially refocus as needed. I am guilty of that for sure. Glad you sorted it out.

Re: Open Star Cluster M34: Colorful Stars without a Blue Filter

Hey Brian A few things hit me right away after reading your post: 1- the obvious, this is a fantastic write-up 2- the second obvious point, the color image is excellent 3- I like HOO but the beauty of this, and tricolors for that matter, is that you can combine them to whatever channel your prefer a...

Re: Open Star Cluster NGC 1664 using a Newtonian Mask

Agree- beautiful open cluster, Brian. I think I am on the fence with the diffraction pattern (twinkle stars) just like the star vs. starless-type images. I think my hesitation is that I really like one or two large stars in an image with the diffraction pattern as a nice touch but not the majority o...

Re: Silver Sliver Galaxy NGC 891

Nice, clear image- Menno. And 120s subs with no guiding. That is impressive. I can't get that on my AP1100 mount unless I build a point model.

Re: The Bubble Nebula & M52 in HOO

Thanks much for the compliment, Dave. I'm getting better with what amount of each filter works best with the particular DSO and what scope I use. Experimenting is part of the fun but having limited clear skies makes it a challenge to get it the way one hopes.

The Bubble Nebula & M52 in HOO

Probably my last image until after the upcoming storm/hurricane.

The Bubble Nebula & M52 open star cluster using the ZWO ASI294mm Pro on an 80mm APO triplet with Chroma Ha and OIII filters- only 4.4 hrs total integration.

Re: NGC 281 The Pacman Nebula in Hubble Palette

Thanks much, Nick. Yes- another hurricane :cry: . Brian- you are correct, sir!! My error which I corrected. I simply estimated frame count based on what others have done, my estimated number of bad frames to delete, and hours I have available to image due to weather. So, I at least was a fair number...

Re: NGC 281 The Pacman Nebula in Hubble Palette

Thanks, Menno.

Agree- I have Andromeda next on my list, too but we have another hurricane heading our way next week so it will have to wait.
