M87 Jet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Those of you used to seeing my work may think (at first sight) that I've lost the plot with this one. Got out for the first time in MONTHS last night and did an hour's worth of imaging with the Hyperstar III on the C11. 12 x 4-minute subs of M87. Processed using the Digital Development Filter (instead of a bunch of curves) and I managed to pull out the JET!!!!! May look unimpressive - but I am really happy with this one :)

Wow, that is awesome. I'd be pretty impressed with myself. Have you inverted it or done other colour manipulations? I imagine the jet would be made up of only a few different wavelengths as opposed to full spectrum starlight.

Hi Ray,

No inversion or colour manipulation, just a bit of careful processing with the DD filter and some curves at the end to reduce the overall brightness a LOT.

Hi Ken,

I imagine when Greg has made the background completely black (like in the expanded view), the jet becomes visible, but with the lighter background it is not, too faint. That's my thinking, but may be wrong.

I see the jet in his photo Ray LOL! but I don't see any photo or link in his last post to EPOD (whatever EPOD is. I've heard of APOD but not EPOD)

lol, i thought you may have had software that showed it was a galaxy behind his galaxy or something (and not a jet). Okay, now I understand. Woops! B)

Thanks Greg, at least I now know what EPOD is  :D

It's strange they didn't call it ESPOD :lol:

Well done!

I think they wanted it to be more like APOD to get hits by association :)
