Image is a combination of 15 frames of each red, green, and blue, 3 seconds each. The images were taken October 18 in below freezing weather with frost on the C-14's corrector plate. This image and larger ones will soon be avialable on my website.

That's nice! The image looks a lot better.

But then there's the next step... color balance. That's a nightmare. You have to figure out how much light each filter passes, and then use that to balance each image before you add them together. I spent a long time on that with Hubble, and never quite got it right. The folks at Space Teelscope Science Institute (http://"http://www.stsci.edu") have it down literally to an art now. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Er.. the "Space Teelscope Institute" doesn't seem to have a valid url. Maybe it's because you misspelled the name? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Reply to his post with quoted text and you can see that he added an extra http;// in front of the address.

http://www.stsci.edu

Aha. I didn't think of the quote thing. The link sends you to http:\, so I thought he just forgot to paste it.

That, and "Teelscopes". What's next, "Fuchsiascopes"?

But that is a nice site.

You might want to PM him or contact him via his website, Mongo hasn't posted on the board in over a year.
