Quasi Hubble Palette processing in Pixinsight

A quasi Hubble Palette image of the Cygnus Wall in the North America Nebula. As I mentioned in a recent post, I’ve been experimenting using OSC data to recreate a Hubble palette look to my images. Normally Hubble Palette is done using a monochrome camera and individual filters, H-alpha, Oxygen III and Sulfur II. Although […]

The Cygnus Wall in NGC 7000

Starless version of Cygnus Wall image

In June 2020 I pointed the Skywatcher Esprit 100 and new QHY268C camera at the Cygnus Wall for 5 nights. We had a run of clear nights in a row and it was also around new Moon which made it even better. I was able to get 23 hours total data. This is what I captured! This is […]

Cygnus Wall in NGC 7000 Nebula (Narrowband)

Cygnus Wall in NGC 7000. Shawn Nielsen, 2014

This is 5 hours of H-alpha and Oxygen 3 data combined to produce a false colour image of the Cygnus Wall in NGC 7000. A variant of the Hubble palette colour profile was applied. This image consists of three hours of hydrogen-alpha (Hα) images and two hours of OIII data. The Hα frames were captured […]

NGC 7000 The North America Nebula In H-Alpha

NGC 7000 North America Nebula in H-alpha - Shawn Nielsen 2013

Now that Winter’s snow and sub-zero temperatures are just around the corner for me here in southern Ontario, I’m making less imaging trips to our dark site and instead doing astrophotography from my home. Due to the ever increasing light pollution of the mid-sized city I live in, I am now focusing on narrowband imaging […]
