4.1 hours of HA data collected on Orion the other day.

FSQ-106, Atik 16200.

2 exposures where 1 hour each.

 

Can't wait to collect some more data on the other channels.

I think once you do RGB you will get a real pearl of a photo. I don't know if I would even do L at all. HaRGB is perfect for this object

Beautiful image, Eric! 

I’m curious, as I’ve been reading up on other’s work flow, ‘cause you have two very long exposures. What if a plane, ISS or a ooo-look-at-me ufo streaks across? That would ruin the whole hour of exposure.

No, I use windsor clipping during the stacking process. That eliminates any outliers in the data. Plus, those  hour long exposures were about 2am. Not much flight traffic at that time around here.
