  1. Can you please post a raw image of Oiii and Sii . I am having hard time adjusting exposure time not knowing what i expect to see in each raw image of those filters. I have good data from H alpha

    1. Hi Nagesha

      I do not have the original frames for this any more, I am building a new image though with the QHY183M. Exposure time is dependant on your imaging, what camera and what scope? Makes a difference on the exposure time
