Okay, I’m whining about problems again, so here are some pretty pictures to drown out the drone. The Crescent Nebula is a bicolor with 17 hours of Ha and OIII, with a CPC1100 and SXVR-H694:
There’s also a tricolor, with 13 hours of SII added in, for those who like their Crescents blue:
And finally the Blue Flash, a small but bright summer planetary. The stars are RGB from an image I shot five years ago (pre SGP!) with a QHY8, and the nebula is 7.3 hours of OIII collected this summer, colorized to blue with PixInsight:
Thanks as always to Ken and Jared for making sleeping-while-imaging a reality for us regular folks.
