Hey gang, I'm back, did I miss anything?
After taking a year off, fixing a glitch in the mount software, and dabbling with my osc SX694c for a few shots I've gone back to the Atik One 6. I really missed the versatility of binning and separate filters.
Just had a string of 3 or 4 so-called clear nights. Which truth be told were mostly pretty poor. Transparency was so bad there were barely more stars visible than on a full moon night.
So I'm actually pleasantly surprised I was able to get this shot even though it took 4 nights and 13 hours total exposure. As always happens when I take time off I have to re-learn about 50% of my processing skills, particularly involving color. I generally tend to keep color fairly subdued but on this one it's more necessity than preference. If I bump up the saturation it looks awful.
