My First Narrow-band Colour Image

Here is my First ever colour image in Narrow Band using the Hubble Palette (kind of).
I am still learning how to process  images taken through narrow band filters, so I probably got a bit carried away 🙂

Eta Carinae nebula: Total exposure time is approximately 1.5 hours with 6 x 5 minute exposures for each narrow band filter:  Ha, Sii, and Oiii Filters.


I am an I.T. Manager and Technical Writer for a software company. I love to dabble in "interesting" hobbies. I built my own observatory for Astronomy, Have built 3D printers (before they were common and inexpensive), and occasionally buy synthesizers or other musical instruments even though I can't really play. I just like to dabble (I guess my heart is still in the eighties).
