22/09/14: Imaging Update

September 22, 2014

Well the nights have started to draw in a bit now which means that the new imaging season can start. I've decided to continue with Hubble Palette narrowband imaging this year so look forward to getting some decent images!

My latest image is a bicolour (Ha:sG:OIII) process of NGC 7380-The Wizard Nebula, a large nebula in Cepheus. Total exposure time - 3.5 hours hydrogen alpha (from 2011) and 4 hour of oxygen-III. Although the skies have been clear, the seeing hasn't been great and individual 15 minute O-III subframes have shown little nebulosity. Despite this I hope I've managed to come up with a decent image. The next plan will be to add some S-II data to develop a Hubble Palette image
