The Lion Nebula Finished


 Share

Recommended Posts

All three are great images, with the final two the Sii adds the extra rich dimension to the left of the image particularly. It looks a tricky one to process as it's a very mixed-up cloud. I like both final results. For me the second image has greater apparent detail on the left and richer colouration, the third is easier on the eye but perhaps has lost a little contrast but could be my bias for not mixing signals. The tird aacentuates that swoop cyan in the middle which contrasts nicely with the richer reds/oranges.

Thanks Paul. The head end of the image has a lot of background nebulosity, making the image look as though it's not been processed properly. The backend of the third one needs a little more doing to it, to bring out the OIII signal more.

Fantastic finished images! You’ve inspired me to try this one myself. 

Thanks. You still have time to capture the nebula. You can image until dawn if you have a good view NE. You should fit all of it in your William Optics scope, I had to do a two panel mosaic on this one.

Thanks, I’ll have a play with the framing and see what I can do.

More excellent worth there Brian, well done.

 

Not sure why it's called the Lion but I'm definitely seeing King Kong on the right. 🤣

Thanks Mark. My framing isn't great on this one, but I assume the head is too the left, and the tail is to the right. I see King Kong too. 😁
