The Melotte 15 Complex
Lens: different Camera: K5 and K3ii Photo Location: home balcony Ascheberg, Germany ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: Above 6s 
Posted By: Pete_XL, 10-05-2018, 12:26 AM

Melotte 15 is a cluster of young stars in the mid of the cloud complex IC1805 - the Heart Nebula - in the constellation Cassiopeia.


The image is a combination of 56 x 600s @ ISO 800 with 12 nm Hydrogen Alpha narrowband filter and an RGB image. The Ha data were shot through a 130/910mm refractor with a stock Pentax K3ii. The RGB data were taken with a 80/480 mm refractor and a stock Pentax K5 (48 x 180s @ ISO 800).

This is truly a remarkable example of hard work in Post Photo Editing. All we have to do now is sit back and soak it all in. Well executed. Awesome photography.

Hats off for the effort and result. Most of us probably wouldn't have the patience let alone the expertise and skill to get a shot like this. Thanks for posting!

Thank you all for you friendly comments.

@GeoJerry: I am glad that my astroimaging setup on the balcony runs stand alone most of the night after I have set it all up properly. So I need maybe an hour for the setup and go to sleep. The software calculations that follow next day do not make much work - they run half- automated and only need a bit of attention. The final processing I do „manual“ in Photoshop need between 2 and maybe 6 hours of work depending on the complexity of the target. So it is not too much work for me in the end.....
