Hi,

the subs for the shown picture was taken in Aug-2015, during several clear nights in the Copenhagen/ Denmark area.

It is composed as a LRGB picture with Ha, OIII, SII subs blended into the R, G, B channels.

Exposure time range was from few sec. up to 300 sec, in total ~11 hours. Equipment used: LX200ACF 16", Atik 460ex mono camera, and Baader filters.

Kind regards Niels

Thanks, Niels!

That is a great image of the Eskimo Nebula. I am enjoying all the other things, galaxies, double stars, maybe other nebula, in the image as well.

Best Regards,

Very nice image.but I would work on some of the stars as you do have the typical sct star bloat going on but it dosnt hurt the image.I just prefer smaller stars but its bersonal taste and not to take anything away from your great image.If you look in my site I may have some star bloat instructions or I hear russel crowman has a nice starbloat photoshop action at a decent price.But let me say again to be clear.VERY NICE IMAGE!!!!!

Thanks a lot, no, copy & paste info. from,

http://www.astrobin.com/165704/

My main scope for taking near field pictures is the LX200ACF 16" scope, reduced to F6.2 using the Lepus 0.62X reducer. For now the Atik 460ex mono camera is connected to the 16" scope.
On-top of the 16" scope is mounted the WO FLT-110 F7 widefield scope, which is connected to the Canon 60Da camera. For guiding, I use the Individual ED70 scope, connected to an SBIG ST-i camera.

Kind regards Niels

Is it me or is that a nebula to the left that resembles the starship Enterprise?  :) Great pic!

Thanks for comments. Well, what it is, I don't know :), but it's most visible in the OIII spectrum, as shown above in this thread.

Kind regards Niels
