During our time on MDRS, as astronomer my main job was to make observations of different space bodies using the MDRS-WF telescope, the observations were focused on astrophotography of the next bodies:
|Andromeda Galaxy||H alpha||210||5|
|Messier 101||RGB + Halpha||60s||4|
|Horsehead nebula||RGB + Halpha||60s||4|
|NGC2024||RG + Halpha||60s||3|
|PGC21396||RGB + Halpha + Lum||45s||5|
|* Horsehead nebula||RGB + Halpha||300s||4|
|* M1||RGB + Halpha + Lum||300s||5|
|* PGC27077||RGB + Halpha + Lum||120s||5|
The filters used to process the images were on most of them RGB and some of them the Halpha filter with a time of exposures between 45 and 300 seconds, after calibrating the images on AstroimageJ I proceed to give the color using photoshop based on the steps the quick guide had gave me.
The results were varied depending on the time of exposure and the filters used, but many of the images were great and I am getting experience and exciting about astrophotography.
