    Here is an image of Eta Carina just finished it.
    80 mm scope 3 hours L R B G O11 Ha stacked in Deep Sky Stacker processed in Startools Photo Shop and Gimp.
    It is just a start I hope to get another 4 hours of data if possible.

    Thanks.
    My astronomy forum calls my efforts art because I go too hard on the colour....

    But that is to make up for the richness in the EM spectrum which we cannot see.....

    Interesting that you see it that way...few would...here is what I said on my astronomy forum.

    Copied from my post on Iceinspace re these photos.

    But I was thinking...

    The electro magnetic specrum if represented as a movie film (the old type with individual identifiable frames) some 2000 miles long that part that we see, the visable part of the spectrum, can be represented as only one single frame...yes all we see is just one single frame in that long strip of film...so I see my efforts as a reminder that although my images appear to contain more colour than we like they are nevertheless still hopelessly devoid of all the information contained in the electromagnetic spectrum that we never imagine.

    And it is funny ...if we could see all the spectrum somehow visually all we would see is just a mist of all there is I expect.

    Ability for selective viewing of EM waves may be an advantage over experiencing everything at the same place at the same time.......

    Time makes the movie longer and the band-width wider.......and experiences are separated into manageable quantum processes.

    A musing; when did a living organisms acquire a sense of continuity and time? IMO, this goes way back to nano scales.
    Then to think the universe was alive and vibrant billions of years before life even appeared and the naturally inherent universal laws determined what we can observe today, including ourselves............

    I agree,
    but are you blaming others for your lack of posting?......
