My NGC253 - The Sculptor Galaxy

Postby edinaldojunior » Thu Sep 17, 2015 8:39 pm

We arrived today my request of NGC 253 ... :lol:

I made an issue in photoscape to reduce noise and improve some details ... hope you like it!

I really liked it, try more frames and filters in a nearby catch.

I published it on my astrobin, with due credit of Bradford, okay?

Hi again!!

If publish the photo on the facebook groups, blog or astrobin, putting my name and Bradford University (as I wrote in yellow in the image itself, in Portuguese *), is correct? :geek:

Probably the most common form is... "Copyright Bradford Robotic Telescope", and include the URL if you have space.

Nice image by the way! :D

I can say that is my and Bradford University? :lol: 8-)

That's a bit confusing to me yet, because never even borrowed telescope I used to take pictures, so far only made records with my 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain - EQ1 ...

Thanks!!!!

Hello Edinaldo,

That looks OK to me. As long as the BRT is mentioned somewhere in the credit, I would think the staff will be happy.

Cheers,
Gary

Surely Gary, this is right! Just do not I get the feeling that the photograph "is my", understand?? Maybe for not doing a more elaborate processing, captured more frames, etc ...

Did I could express my feeling? :roll:

I'll try to get used to the double "Edinaldo & BRT" (as my photos taken with my equipment), and that any publicity (unpaid of course), will be beneficial for both.

I also hope not to suffer rejection by Brazilian astrophotographers (group on facebook where currently put my astrophotography), since I capture my images to a remote machine ... let's see ...

By the way, congratulations on your work with stars, professional thing !!!

Hug!

Hi Edinaldo,

Yes I understand how you feel. However don't feel too aggrieved, as many people now use remote telescopes for CCD imaging of course. I'm absolutely not a Deep Sky astronomer, but it appears to me that a lot of time and effort (some might say too much time and effort) goes into the processing of the image, which is all your own work. Far from rejecting your Facebook images, they might even be a little jealous of them!

Good luck,
Gary

Hello Gary,

Thanks for the nice words .... actually, I'll focus on learning how to make good catches (filters, exposure time, exposure number, etc.) and learn how to process the images.

Thanks again!

Edinaldo
