Cygnus Wall - asi533mm First Light!

#1

Post by depratnt »


Greetings!

So, after months and months of waiting, I was finally able to do a full testing of the ASI533 monochrome camera from ZWO. The last time I imaged this section of the night sky was about two years ago and I did not have a sulfur filter. The only rendition of this nebula that I have been able to do is a bicolor rendition.

Processing this data set was harder than I thought it would be despite the extremely clean data I was able to collect. This data looked so nice after a simple color combination that I hardly wanted to process it! The greener photo below is a simple LRGBCombine and a stretch! This version, to me, almost looks cooler simply because its the RAW data and looks so ethereal and transparent.. Would look even better in broadband I bet!

All that being said, this is a total of 12 hours of data that I collected over a period of just two nights. This includes six hours of hydrogen alpha data, three hours of oxygen data, and three hours of sulfur data all using 600s exposures. The ASI533mm is an awesome camera to use and I look forward to using it on all of my future projects.


The pixel scale combined with my Newtonian is a perfect .78 "/ pixel. I hope you all enjoy!

Great shot and nicely framed!
I was under the impression that pixel scale should be between 1.0 and 2.0 AS/Pixel. I undershot it a bit at my .92. Perhaps I misunderstood?

Aiming for 1.0 - 2.0 "/pixel is just a guideline. If you have stable atmospheric conditions, you can go as low as .5"/pixel. If you have terrible seeing conditions then aiming for 1.5"/pixel may be recommended!

I have found that for my seeing conditions, .78"/pixel is nearly perfect. I dont have a choice in the matter as I will ALWAYS shoot with my 10" Newtonian so I guess I'm just lucky it all works out.

.92"/pixel is a GREAT place to be.

Personally never bothered with the pixel stuff. But that sure is a wonderful image. You'll have lots of good captures with the new camera!
