Had some time off to integrate the data captured over the last few months. This is 1/3rd the data set from HA+O3  with Dual zwo 1600mm + 071  and Rokinon 135 setup. 

 

Suggestions and cc welcome.

 

 12 panels of HA and O3, each panel is roughly 30-40 x 180s images each. APP was used to assemble the mosaic and PI for simple stretch + pixel math blend.

Fantastic shot!  I'd love to know more about your dual 135 setup... I've been looking to create one myself.  Do you have autofocus set up on the 135s?  What software did you use to control the two cameras?

Thank you! I used NINA to control both the ZWO's. This allowed me to gather synchronized dithered data between the two.

I do not have autofocus set up on it yet, amazingly both the rokinons maintains the focus throughout the night . I want to setup autofocus though to do some lrgb from dark

areas.  Below is my dual setup  on RST 135.

Amazing image. Almost looks like a 3D topographical map of the region with pink snow covered peaks and darker valleys in between.

 

What HA/OIII filters are you using? I have the Rokinon 85mm/f1.4 lens. I had made a similar widefield shot with it but image was a mess (as seen here). When I used my Roki lens with the HA and OIII filters, I get very funny fat stars with rings. So, I am wondering if my lens copy is fault or the filters ..... Anil

Thank you Anil. I used 5nm HA & O3 from Astrodon.

This explains the excellent contrast!

 

I am sometimes using the 5nm Astrodon OIII for visual, those very expensive 5nm make the difference,
