Imaging for a change Cocoon Nebula and the Iris Nebula.
« on: September 13, 2021, 02:30:40 pm »
Hi all,

Sorry I've not been around for a while! Too much Atik Support! Apologies for all the spam we keep getting, we are look to upgrade the form soon.

We briefly had some clear sky for a change in the UK the other night, I use our 106 fsq and an Atik Horizon taking 12 x 300 second exposures of Lum and 12 x 150 second exposures of RGB binned 2 x 2 to try to speed up the imaging time before the clouds came back! These is the final results.

Hope you like them.

Vince :)

Hello Vince

Both photos are beautiful, with Iris we need more integration to better highlight the surrounding clouds ;)
For Spam it's too messed up there are very bad people!

Hey Vince! Nice to know you're still with us!

Nice work with the FSQ/Horizon combo and I'm really looking forward to the new spam fighting software. As Crooro said, lots of "spammers" (using an alternative, non-four letter word description) out there and I fail to see how posting their crap helps them at all.

Have fun!
Craig

Thanks Guys,

The forum is now running on different software which is much more modern! Hopefully, it will now be a better place :)

Thanks
Vince :)
