Hey all,

 

Looking for C&C on my first narrowband image. I'll preface this by saying there were a lot of changes to my setup in both hardware and software - dslr to mono, oag instead of guidescope, using sgp for plate solving and finally processing in pixinsight instead of photoshop.

 

My plate solving wasn't dialed in perfectly so the framing could have been better. No dithering as well and I did over expose by a fair amount so it's a little washed out and noisy. Also ringing around some stars, I could try and attack this at the integration stage I believe but I'm happy enough with my result smile.gif

 

About an hour each of Ha and Oiii, blended in HOO style. 600s frames at 300iso with an asi1600 and ed127(666mm with reducer). As I said, I way overshot!

Thanks! CS!

That's a LOT of new stuff to integrate, but you did a really nice job!
