  1. An excellent image, not too blue as it is. In fact there is a hint of green which is made noticeable in two spots circled.
  2. Excellent, I think you can move on to other targets now.
  3. A couple of good images especially Jupiter, well done.
  4. Image isn't that bad, chrominance is a little strong in the stars. Try this: Use Starnet, tick the create star mask option. On the star mask, play with curves, chrominance/saturation etc but just small tweaks. On the nebula, I would try to lighten it, I think to get a lighter yellow you might need a hint of green adding. If the dark structures look pale then there's always the Dark structure script. Once happy with both, re combine with Pixel math.
  5. Lovely image @alacant, interesting one @paraman.
  6. Very nice image, especially the wider field.
  7. Not sure if I can help, dithering should only take a few seconds. Don't know anything about APP, might be some settings that need changing. Maybe if you take shorter subs the read noise might reduce a bit.
  8. Standard USB cable will connect direct to mount. It might take a while initially to figure out that the Baud rate needs to me 115200. You can always set it manually to 115200 in the INDI Control Panel for the mount. Everything connected to a Pegasus Ultimate Power Box V2, the Pegasus then connects to a Raspberry Pi4, the Pi4 connected to Macbook via ethernet cable. This makes it neat and tidy and a lot faster than wifi. Yes it has auto guiding. I would have thought so but not tried it.
  9. From the close up there does seem to be a noise issue. Are you dithering between subs ?
  10. Very good, maybe more data would help and also star reduction. There also seems to be a magenta caste to the background, easy to fix by inverting the image and removing green then re-invert.
  11. Excellent image with good detail.
  12. I think you've got the makings of a decent image. It looks as if you have darkened the background a little too much and clipped data from the black point. Colours are bold but as with any nebula, colour is very much down to personal taste.
