M31 (Esprit 150 core + ED 80)


I was interested to see if I could get more detail from my M31 4 panel mosaic acquired with my SW ED80 by applying new lum data acquired from my Esprit 150. With the same camera, the FoV of the Esprit is only about 1/4 that of the ED80, so I decided just to enhance only the core with the higher resolution data. I used RegiStar to overlay the existing mosaic with the Esprit 150 lum data and then blended the two images together using PS and PI.

The details of the subs are below:

ED 80
