Pier 13 - the Elephant trunk nebula - IC1396 was created by simonnickydowning

I am grateful for the generous offer of using this data, as this is my first image on the forum for a while. Often I just get too busy with work, or with my own home data from my personal gear - not to mention having the mental head space to manage the influx. Anyway, I hope to have done justice to the data. Pier 13 uses the brilliant Orion Optics AG14 F3.8 Imaging Newtonian with Wynne corrector,  and a FLI ML-16803 CCD on a 10 Micron GM2000 mount. A super set up! This comprises of 12 Has, 18 OIIIs and 16 SIIs, all at 10 minutes per sub. This equates to an imaging time of 7 hours and 40 minutes.


Thanks everyone.

Simon

Hi Simon,

Was making a booking when this turned up. Really nice and subtle with your trademark nebulous touch. There are many more in-your-face contrasty (sic) versions, something I always fall into the trap of doing with images. Mind you that approach is a good way of hiding things you'd rather not be there. :)

Just removed a faux pas, didn't read Simons' post correctly. :)

As I said, very nice Simon. If I could find a way to remove noise satisfactorily, then I'd be able to tone things down a bit!

Hope all's well, enjoy the weekend,

Best wishes,

Ray

Ray thank you so much for your kind and supportive words as always. I am pleased that you like my style. I'm not sure that is a deliberate thing on my part it is just how I end up doing things and I'm not sure how I would make things more bold particularly anyway. I do hope you are well and that things are going swimmingly for you and in your life. I trust we will keep in touch a bit. Take care now. Simon
