My attempts at astro imaging

Christmas Tree and Cone Nebula

I took this a couple of weeks ago and have been playing about with it in Pixinsight. Eventualy I dicovered that a couple of subs were no good – 1 had trailing (albeit slight) and the other must have had soem high cloud as it was very orange. So, I took them out and restacked and with a bit of messing here is the result – still not completly happy with it, but dont know what I want it to look like, never mind how to do it!

Image Deatils:

3hrs in 15min subs with Altair F4 Newt and QHY8, guided with WO70mm and Meade DSI. Processing done in Pixinsight, with a wee tweak in Photoshop.

As usual I went back and had another play, so I present 2 images below….
