Hi
The weather has again been a pain so this is another image which ahs taken several weeks to complete, it is of IC1848 (soul or foetus nebula) using the HST palette so SII:Ha:OIII = R:G:B. It was taken with a FSQ106ED at f5 and FLI ML8300 on a Paramount ME. Exposure details are as follows
SII 20x30 minutes
Ha 13x30 minutes
OIII 5x30 minutes
All sub frames were calibrated in Maxim DL5, images registered with Registar, stacking and pre-stretching to 16 bit tiff in Maxim DL5 and then colour combined and processed in Photoshop CS5. Processing consisted of levels, curves, contrast adjustments and selective colour
I first tried this over 4 years ago and that attempt can be seen on my website http://www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk for comparison.
There is a full size version of this at the following link

Thanks for looking
Best wishes
Gordon
