Ced214, Sh2-157 and IC405/410 in HST palette
Posted by GordonH on Monday, November 18, 2013 12:53 PM

I have had a few opportunities to get some imaging done over the last month and have captured three images all in the HST palette. The first is of Ced214/NGC7822, the second is of Sh2-157 and neighbours and the third is of IC405/410. All were taken with the Televue NP127is/FLI Atlas-CentreLine-PL16803 prototype system that I am testing on a Paramount ME with an Officine Stellare Falco/lodestar guiding combination. Exposure times varied between 10 and 14 hours per image.

The full size versions can be seen at the following links

Thanks for looking
Best wishes

Currently using a Tele Vue NP127/FLI (Atlas/Centreline/PL16803) prototype imaging system. Paramount ME. OS Falco guide scope and SX lodestar.

Amazing as always, Gordon. Your images are really inspiring me to move toward narrowband imaging.
