Hi folks! Last night to following morning I captured over 5 hours of M33 Pinwheel Galaxy with series of 300 secs to 600 secs of each colour filter using the LRGB filters and QHY9 Mono CCD using the mighty 80mm Lunt ED Refractor, stacked using DSS and aligned the Luminance with DSS and then final processed using Photoshop CS2 and produced this truly stunning image of this galaxy! I must admit that the resoultion is so much better than a color ccd but the trouble with LRGB imaging is very image processing hardcore! But this being my first successful LRGB image! It's truly remarkable and I'm so proud that I have achieved it. Again to final process this image took me 3 hours to do, and there still a lot of work to do! I wished to thank all the guy's from SGL! Ollyprience and John for providing some excellent advice on LRGB imaging! My techinques have come along way and still I'm learning! But just show's how much hard does exactly pay off!!!
