  1. Thanks. The plan is to start with RGB in 2-3 weeks
  2. Thank you. I use Image Composite Editor
  3. Hi, and thanks for the constructive feedback. I've also seen this. The problem has been that some panels only have 1 hours exp, and others 6 hours. I couldn't stretch the pictures equally, so the results were not good. I've stretched all the pictures completely, before stitching. So the exposure level becomes a little different throughout the whole picture

  5. Thank you About 7-8 hours
  6. A bit about editing:The M27 I had to make 3 different pictures. (Background, shield around core, and core)The core is edited as a SHO mix Red = (50% SII and HA) Green = (20% HA and 80% OIII) Blue = 100% OIII. SII I have only used in the core itself to get some more details.The background is traditional RGB, but I've used ha as Lum for too take down some noise.the shield around the core is edited as HHOO. Lum and R = HA and G and B = OIII.All 3 images are then edited separately, so I mix this together using difrent mask.The entire edit was done in Pixinsight in its entirety, except for some masks that I had to draw manually.
