So I have some wide-field narrowband OSC data (OPT Triad Ultra Filter, ASI071MC Pro, 300mm f2.8 lens) and some narrow field narrowband data (Astrodon SHO filters, ASI1600MM-C, EdgeHD 800 at 140mm f7) on the Crescent Nebula.
I'm also kind of thinking about using a 183MM Pro I will soon have (in exchange for my 294MC Pro - long story), and using it with a 200mm f2.8 lens with HA and OIII filters to be dual mounted with the 071MC Pro imaging train above, providing almost the same FOV.
So the question is, how would you guys merge all of these data together using PixInsight?
I'm thinking about:
- Calibrating all frames
- using a batch procedure to split all of the individual OSC frames into their RGB Components
- registering and integrating (R, HA, SII), (G, OIII), (B, OIII) using adaptive smoothing (does that even work? would frames from such a wide and tight FOV on the same object work)?
- Merging back together the new integrated R, G, and B channels
Any other ideas?
