Last nights NGC40..Bow Tie Nebula-ASI294-Sharpcap/win 10 photos (only) -42 seconds, stack 11x gain 382,EXP127@F5.2 Tampa,full and crop.
Scope and camera is becoming a nice combo. No guiding....G11
Nice image Bob! I do not mean to criticize but I am puzzled by the exposure times used. I have seen bright objects like NGC 40 captured using ccd sensors with much less exposure of about 20 to 30 seconds with no gain control producing excellent results. I noticed that your image is using a high gain of 382 and 42 sec sub-images and was wondering if you could try less exposure time? This might perhaps bring out some of the star colors.
