  1. feel free to share the data you got on both versions with the forum. i am not experienced neither. but i am sure some others here can.
  2. This should be done much more , sharing data. hereby my version of your Orion done a bit like i am currently used to do playing a lot with masks and curvetransformation,... in pixinsight and than saving it as a TIFF , opening Darktable and looking what it gives if i pull the highlightslider,...
  3. i prefer the second version, star reduction is certainly worth doing in 'crowded' areas like these. nice job!
  4. also an advantage of a small scope in my opinion is that the image doesn't get too overwhelming with craters. Ilove your image, great job!
  5. Nice done ! and now the misery will start. you will want to do it better, faster and let the money roll . but from my point of view it's worth all the things you'll have to tackle
  6. despite the little hick-ups you had a very nice result. recently i learned remote controlling my scope , still not dare to leave it all alone a night long . now i am trying to save up for an obsie to keep all settled . sooner or later i'll get the habbit to go sleep and let the marvel technique do his thing at night
  7. nice result. you got some good details in it. for your stars if you are using a reducer : experiment with a bit more spacing or less and look upon the result. had the same with mine and after some fidling with a mm extra, less,.. i came to nice stars acros the image (must still post it) Dslr's have indeed a hard time these days with night of 20+ °C . that is why i am happy i bought a cooled CMOS
  8. indeed way better. good job!
  9. look nice. looks like a lot of 130PDS owners have a Evostar72ED as well. i am guilty on it as well. the pds aint bad but man do i love that Evostar72!
  10. nicely done . personally i wouldn't have done a HDRtransform thingy on the image. but that is personal flavor ofcourse. Keep up the good work
  11. i saw it pass on Astrobin , amazingly done!
  12. my humble version with some hings done in PixInsight : color calibration and background thingy , DBE (division), DBE(substraction) , rangemask , curvetransformation ,GAMe mask , curvetransformation , L-extract , HDRtransformation, starmakst , morphylogical tranformation, historgramtransformation , extract L, R,G,B and LRGB-combination . think that is is more or less oh yes and SCNR did you make raw? or only jpeg? did you used any calibration?
  13. set-up : Skywatcher EQM35Pro , Skywatcher Evostar ED72 with TS fieldflattner , Raspberry Pi4 with EKOS/Kstars ( no Starmate or astroberry) , Idas Hutech LPS2 filter it is all going i the right directions. Hold the wood but all issues ( just spacing Fieldflattner ) seem to be solved average RMS of guiding is improved to 1.15". Remote controll with the PI works like a breeze. whenever i feel the need to stay inside or want to go sleep, i can trust my gear now to do what must be done.
  14. true, the mottling is a result of going maybe a bit to aggressive in my starmask i used for star reduction. but there will be more in the future to keep n mind with hopefully some better results. Also, i will need more subs to take ofcourse. But i am planning to get the whole Veil Nebula in one picture , but first see how i do on ohter subjects too. no rush
