Pretty much pulled an all-nighter to capture the attached, which proved to be much more tricky to process than I expected, but with some ham-fisted processing and 7 hours (21 x 1200secs) worth of data in Ha (7nm) I have ended up with an image. Image cropped so not quite the full fov from the original (4500x3600) then reduced to 1000 x 811.

Equipment and software listed below.

Captured, guided and calibrated in Maxim DL6.13 - processed in PSCS3E

Hope to add an equal amount of OIII over the coming nights, wind, moon, clouds and gremlins permitting! As usual comments and feedback welcomed.

Looks very good to me Jim. took me four panels in a mosaic to get the same FOV with the 383L & FSQ85.

Very kind, I always appreciate your experienced eye. I am very happy with the fov this camera provides with my set-up, so fingers crossed for plenty of clear nights! ATB Jim

Thanks Mark glad you liked it. I mostly visit the forum via my mobile so I end up having to scroll regardless. ATB Jim

  • The 16200 is NOT getting a lot of use!

Managed to add 5 hours of OIII to the 7 hours of Ha from the original post.  All in 1200 second chunks.  Details same as above.

I am trying to get this one up to 15 hours total integration time but wanted to see how things looked with the data already gathered.    Not happy with how much I have allowed Cyg 52 to bloat as this was a rushed process, so will have to take greater care during the reprocess once I have all the data I need.

Anyway so far the image has some promise and has captured some of the fainter nebulosity of the central region.

Just added another version of the process (No 3), hopefully a little more restrained in my ham-fisted approach to processing this time.

As usual comment and advice welcomed.

Thanks for looking, ATB Jim
