Hi all,

 

I imaged IC 63 last night using the L-eNhance filter. I had some platesolve issues and ended up not using the two hours of data collected before the meridian flip. This is about 7.5 hours using 148x180s at -10deg and unity gain/offset.

 

This is HOO using split RGB and Pixelmath in Pixinsight. I think I may try to rework the noise reduction. I am still learning how best to handle noise reduction and stretching the split Ha and OIII masters before combining and final processing. I think I also goofed the resample after drizzle because I ended up resampling twice. Either way, I am happy with the colors and surprised by how many stars snuck through the L-eNhance this time. Navi was difficult to control and even the big ol' halo around it kept being caught in the rangeselection mask.

 

C&C welcome, thanks for looking!
