Pickerings Wisp - Part of the Veil Nebula
« on: January 27, 2019, 08:39:12 PM »
Celestron C8 / Alan Gee Reducer
f=1175mm, Hubble colors
Atik 383L+ Binning 2, 3 x H-Alpha, 3 x OIII, 3 x SII, 1 x Luminance, (Baader narrowband filter)
15 min for each picture
It was difficult to develop this picture with pixinsight, especially the background model has been a problem. In the end I took the ABE automatic background extraction. Another problem has been the noise. To see the faint structures of the nebula, I have to remove the noise in luminance and chrominance.
The stars a quite dominant.
