Hello friends! I'm embarrassed to admit I made a rookie mistake in calibrating the Rosette nebula image I shared. Here is the updated image with the correct calibration. I still like the original because it is visually very interesting but the colors are completely wrong. This time I just used an HOO pallette. (Red=H, Green=O, Blue=O)
Sure! Here is a photo of my rig. Everything runs off the ASIAir (Raspberry Pie computer - red enclosure below the guide scope). It has a limited Wi-Fi range so I added a WiFi range extender (white box on near side of mount). The camera is a cooled color CMOS from ASI (ASI294 MC Pro)
Hi everybody. Here is the result of my first attempt to create a color image from my L-Enhance filter. I used PixelMath in Pixinsight to combine the Hydrogen alpha and Oxygen III monochrome images Red (100% Ha) Green (20% Ha 80% O III) Blue (10% Ha 90% O III). Orion ED80 Refractor with 0.8x flattener and Orion Sirius EQ-G mount and ASIAir Pro. 30x300sec images stacked and the two channels (Ha OIII) extracted using AstroPixelProcessor. Post-processed in PixInsight. Images of Rosette Nebula collected Jan 23 in the NJ Pine Barrens
Nice! Glad to see you had some time under the stars. It has been kinda cold for me – and pretty cloudy.
