This image is a collaboration between Andy (andysea) and myself. I used Andy's excellent luminance data taken at a super dark location and added color data with a scope of approximately similar FL.

Andy's original thread is here:

This image represents about 5 hours of Luminance and 3 hours of RGB. All exposures were 10mins long and binned 1x1.

Cameras: QSI-583 (Andy) and QSI-683 (Ram)
Scopes: Takahashi TOA-130 + reducer (Andy) and Astro-physics 130 EDF + flattener (Ram)
Mount: Astro-physics Mach1 (Andy) and 600E (Ram)

I used Sequence Generator Pro and pinpoint to platesolve. And then cropped appropriately.

The dark location reveals the IFN that passes through that area of the sky. I tried to avoid stretching that very much to maintain a more natural balance. (if that makes any sense at all :)

Would love to hear from you!
