Finally finished my M78 project I started this past December. During processing, the color data I captured this past weekend wasn't very good - too little exposure - so I decided to use some older color data captured with my QSI-683 camera that never had matching luminance.
Not as much blue in this as I wanted, as I had very limited color data and I always have trouble capturing enough blue. But I think the color palette looks pretty cool.
But what is really cool . . . .
I noticed a major difference between the two sets of data.
McNeil's nebula is missing from my latest luminance data. Where did it go ? ? ? ? ? ?
Luminance 4 hours - Takahashi TOA-130 / reducer (f5.5) and ASI183
Color - Takahashi TOA-130 / no reducer (f8.0) and QSI-683
