One of the reasons I spent the money for the Astrodon OIII and SII filters is the Wizard Nebula, NGC 7380. I think it looks fantastic using the Hubble Palette, and I wanted to be able to create a version of my own. Last night I started collecting the data for this. The night started out quite clear but unfortunately after just 5 Ha subs of 30 minutes each, the clouds rolled in and I was done for the night. Still that is 2.5 hours of data and will make a start. I did not bin the HA data since this nebula is really fairly bright. Here is a quick pass at processing it.
Here are my occasional thoughts on Astrophotography, Astronomy, and whatever else catches my attention.
