Process details:
I combined about 7 hours of Ha data with 12 hours of RGB data in PixInsight. I then used StarNet++ to obtain a starless image and did a 50% blend with my RGBHa image in Photoshop. Final touches on color and HDR were adjusted in Photoshop.

Acquisition Details: 144x600" RGB, Ha

Total Integration: ~19 hours

Imaging telescope: Takahashi FSQ-106N

Imaging camera: QHY600

Filters: Chroma RGB, 3nm Ha

Mount: Astro-Physics 1200 GTO

Software: Sequence Generator Pro, PixInsight, Adobe LightRoom, Adobe Photoshop

 

I've been experimenting with different ways of framing common targets. I wanted to capture the entire Orion's Belt while also framing the Horsehead nicely and leaving some negative space to draw the eye towards it. Let me know if you have any questions or critiques. I'm always looking to improve. Thanks!
