Hi All!

 

Even if I still need to improve my image processing skills, I'm pretty happy with image of the Pacman Nebula (NGC281)... This Summer has been terrible for imaging, so I'm every more happy that I was able to caputred that amount of exposure on this target!

 

I gathered about 6h of data to complete this project:

 

Acquisition:

  • Rising Cam IMX571 color + Zenithstar73
  • iOptron CEM26 + iPolar
  • ZWO ASI224MC + WO Uniguide 120mm
  • NINA & PHD2
  • Nebula : IDAS NBZ / 300 sec x 60
  • Stars: UV-IR Cut / 60 sec x 70

 

Processing :

  • Siril, StarNet++ & Gimp

Comments are welcomed! 

Have a nice Sunday!!
