This is my first attempt at incorporating NB data in an LRGB image. All data was collected at the Dark Sky Observatory Collaborative (DSOC) in Ft. Davis, TX, in collaboration with: John Kasianowicz, Josh Balsam, Mike Selby, Dhaval Brahmbhatt, Scott Johnson, Mike Bushell, Rich Johnson, and Walt Lickteig.

 

Subs breakdown:

Lum x 15
Red x 20
Green x 34
Blue x 21

Ha x 15

 

All subs are 600s, through Astrodon filters. 

 

I used the NBRGB Combination script in PI, first time I've ever tried it. Other than ensuring the frames were registered to each other (using Dynamic Alignment), it was pretty simple. I'm pretty happy with the added data, and plan to do another go at the Crescent Nebula, using all the data available to me -- this was done with about half of the data. 

 

Thanks for looking, C&C welcome!

Thanks! I was pretty luck to be on the imaging team that collected this data.
