Description

What a great time of year for a few clear nights! With the winter constellations in full view and some time off from work, it was a real bonus to have a few clear nights last week. Captured the constellation of Orion in H-alpha on the night of December 24, 2019 with my old 'nifty fifty' camera lens. Plan to use this data to also generate an NBRGB version of the previous posting of Orion.

Imaged with 50mm Nikon at F/4, Optolong Lenhance dual narrowband filter (mounted to the front of the lens with a step ring), and full spectrum modified Nikon D5300.

Pre-processed using PixInsight Batch Pre-Processing (BPP) script. Images calibrated using darks, bias, and flats. Extracted red/green/blue channels using BatchChannelExtraction script. Registered and stacked using StarAlighment and Integration. Total integration time of ~1 hours using 43 subs at ISO1600x90 sec. Post-processed in Pixinsight: Cropped, gradient removal with ABE, MLT for noise reduction, masked stretch, TGVDenoise for noise reduction, and morphological transformation.
