Hi,
Antlia have a new filter available for OSCs to allow the user to capture Sii and Hb wavelengths.
Usually the processing for the OSC Ha and Oiii is straight forward with APP.
How does this workflow now work for this new filter? e.g. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/antlia-filters/antlia-alp-t-dual-band-5nm-h-beta-and-sii-filter.html

Thanks,

Kev

Hi Kev,

I would say use "Ha-OIII extract Ha" to extract the SII data and "Ha-OIII extract OIII" to extract the Hbeta data, since SII should be on the R pixel and Hß the GB pixel (SII has nearly the same wavelength as Ha, same with OIII and Hbeta

 

Regards

Hi Jürgen,
That makes sense. Good workaround.

I guess a UI improvement would be easy to implement to have this same process but with the right filter name metadata automatically added to save the manual altering.
Cheers,

Kev

Yes, that may be a nice thing to do, I'll put it on the list

One thing I thought about: would it be possible for the OSC-Dualband users to get the extraction with ONE process? So extract the OIII/Ha (or Hb/SII) at once into two files? Since I think most of us always extract both anyway?

@juergenn - One process dual extraction for both Antlia dual band filters (with correct metadata) would be very time saving!

 

I actually use the Opti L-Ultimate for Ha-OIII, but considering the Antlia due to intermittent halo issues.
