TerryMcK Posted April 23, 2021 Share Posted April 23, 2021 (edited) Here is the work in progress on M81 and M82. Essentially I did SHO on the M81 the other night as I still had the mono camera on and just set it off to see what sort of Ha is in Bode's I processed it an found some outlying regions which are probably hives of activity. Then I replaced the camera with the OSC colour camera, same scale and pixel size, to add some RGB. Then I noticed the camera was rotated from the original image and also picked up M82 The Cigar but was too far over in the left hand side of the frame for my liking. So last night I added M82 to the mosaic. Next I did some processing on the whole lot in PixInsight using some mosaic techniques I picked up from a course with Warren Keller and ROn Brecher which I attended in a virtual session the other day. This is a snapshot of my PI workspace. Mosaic processing is quite easy once you get your head around it.
