The Bubble Nebula & M52 in HOO

Post by umasscrew39 »

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.

Very nice Bruce. Doubling the Ha over the OIII (from your Astrobin description) looks to have worked well.

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.

This one https://www.astrobin.com/44bc0e/B/?nc=userwas 4x more OIII than Ha. It depends on what the makeup of the object is as to what works but I haven't understood that enough yet.
