3 filter image

Hi

When submitting an observation, how do I select different filters in order to take R V B for example to create a colour image.

Hi Pete,

Hi Pete,

Can you give me a little more information please? What type of object are you trying to observe, or if it is easier, which Go Observing sections are you clicking on (Galaxies, Stars etc.)?

Imaging a Galaxy in 3 Filter Types

Hi Alison

I select Go Observing then select Deep Sky Objects .. select image NGC 7331. I then get a page saying it will image the Galaxy for me with the Red Filter but have no control to change the filter and add other filters or change exposure.

It looks like three color

It looks like three color imaging isn't available to you, I can check if this can be changed but unfortunately the earliest I can do this is next week. Sorry for any inconvenience this is causing.

Hi Pete,

Hi Pete,

I understand Stacey has been in touch with you, but i just wanted to add her response to this thread so any other users with a similar question will be able to see the answer.

Your user type does not yet have access to the 3-colour imaging tools, but we are hoping to add this functionality soon. Unfortunately you will still not be able to determine exposure time or filter (due to constraints on our telescope time).
