The Witch's Broom and Pickering's Triangle HOO

I got lucky last night with about 4 hrs of clear skies, and no gremlins in the system.  I want to add some more data to this to reduce the background noise a bit but I'm pretty happy with my first pass processing.

Details: 300sec subs @ gain 200, 20x Ha, 25x  Oiii, AA 70mm ED-T, ASI1600mm Pro and HEQ5+ASIAIR Pro.

 

Cheers,

Paul

This is take 2🙂, I captured more frames last night - softened by frequent high cloud (total it is now around 7.5 hrs). Spent a little more time in the processing which has given me fainter detail, reduced stars and overall its less crunchy.

Comments and critiques welcome🧐

 

I didn't bother with flat frames, the combination of the AA70mm ED-T + FFFR with the ASI1600mm seems to produce frames with no important vignetting. This is very different from my reflectors. 

 

(Updated the image - the jpeg lost too much).
