Following our week at Les Granges it is my turn to attempt to process the data that we gathered. Steve (gnomus) suggested that I should start off with the Owl Cluster as he thought it would be easier for a relative beginner. This is my attempt to copy his/Olly's processing including emulating the "through the eyepiece" view. When I compared my images with Steve's from last week my stars are much less pronounced that his. Steve's original can be found here:- Should I be a bit more aggressive in processing or are my smaller stars okay? All suggestions welcome......we won't fall out over it....honest!
This is looking like the final image from our week at Les Granges. We used the Dual Takahashi rig over 2 nights to capture: 3 hours of RGB 4 hours 15 mins Luminance 11 hours Ha Olly had some previous data which corresponded roughly with our framing so that got 'chucked in' too. That was another 4.5 hours of Ha and another 4 hours (total) of RGB. I make that 26.75 hours...
I wondered if I could do a little better with the data that we got from our trip to Les Granges in November. Our last effort got to this: https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/280758-ngc-7023-iris-nebula-from-les-granges/?do=findComment&comment=3075021 I went back to the un-stretched data and reworked it. The aim was to try to bring out more of the faint stuff without blowing out the stars. This version seems to have a bit more sparkle and so I hope you will forgive me for reposting it. As before it is: 18 x 900s each of RGB 21 x 1900s of Lum Shot through Olly's Tec 140
