M42 Ha only (WiP)
« on: 17:40:50, 29 December, 2017 »
Currently working on M42, NGC1499 and a single frame of IC 405 and IC410.  Consequently I have only captured approx. 4.5 hours on M42.

Equipment and software listed below. The attached is a quick process of the sub-set exposures pending more integration time and consequently is very much WiP.

10 x 10 secs
19 x30 secs
11 x 120 secs
12 x 300 secs
9 x 1200 all via a Baader Ha 7nm filter (still waiting for my 3.5nm filter to arrive)
Approx 4.5 hours but only 3 hours for the outer nebulosity - hoping to get up to 10 hours skies and weather permitting.

Captured, Guided (Dithered) and Calibrated in Maxim DL 6.13 and Processed in PSCS3E.

As usual C&C welcome. 2nd processing attempted added.

Thanks Mark.  If I get the exposure time in I expect there to be oodles off deep nebulosity to tease out fingers crossed for some decent weather!
