Dear all,
here below is a link to my try on "The Cigar".

Considering the amount of light pollution at my usual location, I found nearly incredible that the IFN could show up - although extremely faint. I did my best to extract it from the background... and paid my price in terms of additional noise :)
However, here it goes:

Acquisition data and process description are in the notes.

Regards!

Gallery / IC1795 - A "silver fish" head - Ha data
« on: 2017 January 14 09:56:04 »
Dear all,
please find below a link to a H-alpha glance at the Fish Head Nebula.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/55461835@N04/32262544806/in/album-72157679134508955/

I found it impossible to obtain a presentable bicolor image with the 5x1200s OIII exposures that I collected so far... so the fish is just "silver" for the moment, and I plan to finish colorizing it at a later time!
I hope that the result is enjoyable anyhow.

Kind regards and clear skies,

Flavio

Dear all,
I submit to your attention my last effort, a shot on the Veil. In the notes, I put some information regarding the acquisition and process flow.

Image Processing Challenges / Noise-reduction advice
« on: 2016 March 23 06:41:54 »
Dear all,
during the tests of a new new instrument, I acquired in sub-optimal conditions (moon and light pollution) some raw frames of M51.
I was not able to obtain a natural look of the sky background with any noise-reduction manipulations I tried; it may well be that the light pollution was too high, but it could also be that my processing skills are just insufficient.

I would be grateful to anyone providing his/her advice; the linear picture is a HDR composition of 24x300s and 6x600s frames, and is available here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/g88edg5nuogwjnc/M51_HDR_lin.xisf?dl=0

The complete acquisition data and the result of my attempt are here (eventually I preferred "no noise reduction" to a "very poor-looking noise reduction" :) ): https://www.flickr.com/photos/55461835@N04/25837882372/in/album-72157665635179570/

Thanks in advance!

Flavio
