GazAstro Posted April 21, 2021 Share Posted April 21, 2021 (edited) So, I finally got round to trying my C8 Edge on the (Darkframe tuned) HEQ5 ! It's been a roller coaster journey but I'll leave that for another time. This is my first time imaging at 1400 mm so quite a challenge, managed a mere 25 mins of L in 15 second subs @139 gain and 20 mins each of RGB in 30 second subs @ 139 gain. Darks = yes, flats = no, massive amounts of stretching in Photoshop = yes (binned) resized in Photoshop to give more acceptable pixel scale 🙂 I know it's about 3 hours short of data and incredibly noisy / rushed but I was so pleased to capture anything with this set up. Looks way nicer on a mobile phone 🤣 Guiding was 0.69 " over a 2 hour period with some really good spells as can be seen below. Thanks for looking. Off to research ways of adding L to RGB now - did this one by using lab colour and pasting over lightness channel.
