Hi Warren - it looks great.
A little suggestion to save lots of time:
Since the details come from the Ha channel as luminance...you can do the detailed mosaic in Ha with your primary scope and the O3 and S3 do with a smaller scope with a wider FOV so you won't need the mosaic...

It works very well...

Anyway great project.

Uh-oh! I better get busy and finish mine! I've lost steam on processing; still collecting data, but not processing much! Maybe I'm subconsciously preparing for an extended cloudy spell! They call that winter don't they?


Good start!


Steve

Hmmmm, maybe I'll try a shot with my 50mm finder scope just to see how it looks since I'm going to blur the chrominance anyway, thanks for the suggestion! (no other smaller scope in my arsenal!)
