M101 now in colour
« on: 11:11:59, 07 May, 2018 »
After my Observatory PC died last week I missed a few clear nights, but now have the backup PC going so finally managed to capture the RGB data on M101 to add to my previous Luminance image, so have just about enough to make the  LRGB version.
Around 5hrs total comprised of 5 min and 10 min subs with my Atik 314L & 102mm F7 ED refractor,
processed and in Maxim DL & Photoshop.

Lots of good detail and faint areas.  Not sure about the colour - perhaps a bit on the yellow side?

Cheers,

Peter.
