Description

Data from POSS-II Survey and David Lindemann

To improve colors and details, I have used an hybrid color palette composed by narrowband, red and blue data that shows together primary and complementary colors along a continuum.

Additional SHO data have been captured in March 2012 with my old lens Tokina 300 f2.8.

Captured 03/14/2013, 03/27/2015, 03/28/2015, 04/06/2015, 04/07/2015, 04/08/2015 with Takahashi FSQ106ED @f/5 530mm focal length with Apogee Alta U8300 monochrome and Astrodon narrowband H-alpha 5nm filter on 10micron GM2000 HPS II unguided

92 x 10 minutes unbinned = 15h20
6 x 20 minutes uninned = 2h (for Elephant's Trunk nebula)

Total exposure : 17h20

POSS-II Survey (http://www.astro.caltech.edu/~wws/poss2.html) 25 panels of 60x60 arc/min for Red and Blue data)

Cannistra Bicolor Technique: http://www.starrywonders.com/bicolortechniquenew.html

Software: MaximDL to capture - CCDStack to calibrate, register, normalize, data reject and combine - Photoshop CS5 and PixInsight for color combine, stars reduction, non-linear streching and large scale and small scale composition.
