IC 1396 Elephant's Trunk Nebula SHO

Recommended Posts

I had a very surprising third clear night last night and managed 6 hrs of subs. This is an SHO version of the nebula. I'm trying to hold back my saturation. I'm varying my processing again and I seem to have it ok for this target, I shall try something similar on my Eastern Veil image if I can ever remember the steps. 😄.

This was taken with my Altair Astro 70 mm ED-Triplet which I am beginning to really enjoy.

 

 

Comments please!

Looking good, I like the colours, and the framing is excellent.

I reprocessed my image including some flats this time and reduced the green suppression to give an overall richer look. Staring at it I find it hard to judge if I have taken it too far.

 

My flats aren't working so well I think I am missing a trick with WBB as it still leaves the corners a little dark so I am forced to crop off more than I wished. There is always something!
