IC 410

IC 410 is a beautiful object next to a "Flaming Star Nebula", IC 405, in Auriga.


Ambient temperature was about -21 celsius degrees and the transparency was good.

Seeing was really bad all night long, about 5 FWHM, so I shot H-alpha frames binned 2x2 to have a image scale of 1,5 arcseconds/pixel.

-

Processing work flow:

Image acquisition, MaxiDL v5.07.

Stacked and calibrated in CCDStack.

Deconvolution with a CCDSharp, 30 iterations.

Levels, curves and color combine in PS CS3.

-

Telescope, Meade LX200 GPS 12" @ f5
Camera, QHY9

Guiding, SXV-AO @ 8Hz
Image Scale, 1,5 arcseconds/pixel
-
Exposures:

H-alpha 7x1200s Binned 2x2
O-III 4x600s, binned 3x3
S-II 3x600s, binned 3x3
