Hey folks! Hope all is well and you’ve been getting some clear skies. In this astrophotography video I gather data on NGC 7822 nebula region in Cepheus using my Skywatcher Esprit 100 triplet refractor telescope, Moravian 16200EC CCD and Optolong (Ha, OIII and SII) narrowband filters. It was a challenge to gather enough data for this image mainly due to weather. It’s positioned well for me in the night sky right now and I can image it all night long. It took me 6 clear nights and I ended up with 29 hours worth. Join me as process this Hubble palette data in Pixinsight from start to finish. Hubble palette images are also referred to as “SHO” which simply stands for Sulphur II, H-alpha and Oxygen III.
