paul Posted June 1, 2021 Share Posted June 1, 2021 Of course, the skies here aren't really dark at the moment but I could not resist trying out the new scheme (for me at least). This image is the result of 1.5hrs of 30 second subs. The outcome is easier control over clipping stars, fewer trashed frames and better star shapes at full resolution. I have 30 mins of Lum but I'm not sure it will add much. I may try another round of processing to see if I can improve the contrast and less burn in the core. This image is a pretty much full frame with just dithering needing to be cropped out. Imaging details: 250mm Newt on the CEM70G. Camera was ASI1600MM-Pro @ Gain 139, Offset 50. Guiding with a 60mm guide scope and ASI290mc (my planetary camera). Processed in PixInsight and finished in Paintshop Pro. Guiding has been horrible the last two nights; I seem to have injected some misalignment as DEC keeps throwing a wobbly - I need to check my PA routine because when I have it right DEC doesn't need much adjustment at all. I would like subs on the scope to be longer than 30secs for narrow band so I need to iron this out. As we had a second clear night I have some M92 subs to process, hopefully the data will be good🤞 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
