Tadpole Nebula


Recommended Posts

I had my first go at the tadpole nebula last night. I got 77x300s subs so about 6.5 hours data, 50 darks and bad pixel map. no flats.

pretty happy up till ow, will try and get another 6.5 hours of oIII and 6.5 hours of S2. see if I can get this up to higher levels :)

I tried dithering, but it was messing up my stars, unsure why, but to be honest, I don't think dithering would improve this image much. 


I need to shoot new darks though as these where shot at -10 and the subs at 0c.
