  2. Star reduced California nebula

    Wow mate, that almost looks 3D. Great work! Ray
  3. Yesterday
  4. Last week
  5. The whole of Delphinus

    Here is the Noel Carboni version. Greg
  6. StarXTerminator as a processing tool

    Love it Prof. I will be using this software in due course. Ray
  7. StarXTerminator as a processing tool

    For his demo of STarXTerminator Russ Croman uses the Veil Nebula. The attached image shows why this one is a good choice. Greg
  8. The whole of Delphinus

    Got this 2 nights ago with the 200mm lenses and 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras. 28 x 10-minute subs on the Delphinus region. Greg
  9. Star reduced Horsehead and Belt Stars of Orion

    Wow, that is some serious nebulosity! Ray
  10. Detailed Image of Dragonfly Eye November 21, 2022 You saw it on here first Greg https://epod.usra.edu/blog/2022/11/image-of-dragonfly-eye.html

  12. The Horsehead nebula and the Belt Stars of Orion region. This is a 2-frame mosaic using a single Sky90 and a single M25C OSC CCD. H-alpha and OIII data was also included. Imaging time around 4-hours (or more) per frame. This version is with the star reduction app that works with Russ Croman's StarXTerminator Greg.
  13. Star reduced IC410/405

    Love your work Prof. Ray
  14. Star reduced IC410/405

    It was 76 x 15-minute subs on the 200mm lenses, so it's 29-hours and NOT 39-hours for the total exposure time. Greg
  15. Star reduced IC410/405

    And this is a composite image comprising 34 x 20-minute subs on the Sky90s and 74 x 20-minute subs on the 200mm lenses. A pretty mediocre looking image seeing as there's 39-hours worth of data in there!! Maybe Noel Carboni can turn out something a bit better. Greg
  16. Star reduced IC410/405

    My free trial of Russ Croman's StarXTerminator ran out, so I just bought the full licence In celebration I ran it on an old Sky90/SX M26C image of IC410/IC405 which was 34 subs at 20-minutes per sub. In this version the tadpoles are clearly seen top-left of the left hand nebula Greg.
  17. StarXTerminator as a processing tool

    Very nice Tim! Greg
  18. Processing DSS images

    Quite awesome on that one! Tim
  19. StarXTerminator as a processing tool

    In this particular image, a definite improvement to enhance/bring more focus to the nebula. I am sure this is more 'automatic' in it's execution. Using a DSLR when I was doing deep sky imaging, I didn't have this problem However, I did create my own 'star reduction' tool in my very old PS CS3, which theoretically, could be altered to a degree, depending on how much 'reduction' one wanted.

  20. Star reduced Great Orion Nebula

    That's some serious nebulosity. Ray
  21. Star reduced Jellyfish nebula

    Great little target. Ray
  22. Star reduced Veil nebula

    Awesome Prof. Ray
  23. Star reduced IC1396

    As per title, Greg
  24. Star reduced Great Orion Nebula

    As per the title Greg
  25. Star reduced Jellyfish nebula

    As the title says Greg
  26. Star reduced Veil nebula

    This time the Veil nebula in Cygnus gets the star reduction. Greg
  27. Star reduced IC410/IC405

    You may (or may not remember) that quite a while back I took an image of the IC410/IC405 region using the 200mm lenses and 76 x 15-minute subs - and I was very disappointed with the result. Well Noel Carboni ran the star reduction routine on it using Russ Croman's StarXTerminator - and this was the much more acceptable result. Greg
