30/09/14: Imaging Update-NGC-7380 Hubble Palette

October 01, 2014

Well I finally managed a Hubble Palette image of NGC 7380 after gathering 4.25 hours of S-II data over a couple of evenings. This one took a lot of processing but I found the chapter on narrowband imaging in 'Lessons from the Masters' very useful. One of the main challenges was getting the colour balance right-the H-a data can really swamp the image. The addition of the super-luminance layer also really helped to preserve some fine detail.

De-saturation helped get rid of the strong magenta in the star colours.

On with the next target.....
