NGC 2264 - 10.3.2021 at 19.30 - 11.3.2021 at 00.00 Kangaslampi Observation number 96704

Visibility III / V

Erik Pirtala, Warkauden Kassiopeia

You are less likely to see images taken in the SHO palette from this fog. Had to try, though.
I described 5 hours of H-alpha, 4 hours of O-III, 3 hours of S-II, and one hour of RGB. So a total of 13 hours. This time I took all the RGB channels: not just the stars. It feels like I got a little richer stars with this style. Plus, that’s how I got broadband fog (affected by the reflection fog) included in that mid-range.

The handling was terribly difficult because that O-III is so extensive and opaque.

Another image of the starless version.

Todella upea kuva! Tähdetön kuva on kuin maalaus, siitä erottuu sumun yksityiskohdat hienosti.

En ole pitkään aikaan nähnyt mitään näin hienoa. Kerrassaan upea.

Tähdetön versio tuo mieleen William Turnerin maalaukset 1800-luvulta.

Samanlaista "Romanttis-psykedeelistä" myllerrystä.
