23 Megapixel M33 widefield

Post by avdhoeven » Sun Nov 03, 2013 11:22 pm

About 3 weeks ago Michael van Doorn and me made images of M33 on the same evening. He took his images with his C11 Hyperstar, a 27 cm reflector with a f-ratio of only 2, allowing him to take very short exposures to gather much color information. At the same time I took images of a smaller field (the galaxy itself) with the TEC140 giving a higher resolution.

We combined the images before, but now we took the Hyperstar data for the widefield and the TEC data for the galaxy. This gives a perfect combination for gathering an image under light polluted conditions in a short time.

In total 11h of data were used for this image.

This shows the image in the native TEC resolution, with an upscaled hyperstar, totalling up to 23Mp!

Blending both images was quite a challenge, but the result came out quite well I think...

Solar eclipse 03 november 2013 from Electro-L
We decided to show to you the total solar eclipse of the way it can be seen from a distance of 36,000 kilometers above the Earth's surface. Position of the satellite "Electro-L" is very successful and we can see the shadow that covers the African Continent.
