Clear skies last night but not ideal conditions for rgb imaging quite strong LP for some reason :D

I went for the RGB unbinned for a change not sure why.

LRGB

L = 30 @ 6 Min's from the other night

RGB = 9 @ 6 Min's each

Nicely captured and framed Mike.

As you say, it was clear, but the 'seeing' was a bit rough last night.

Very nice Mike,

I had a go at this thursday night after seeing your luminance image from the other day (woke up at 3am...it was clear!) but didn't get too much....most subs were no good 'cos the scope had dewed up and I didn't notice !

Shame about the seeing last night....clear but really damp here, water literally dripping from the forks!

Cheers

Rob

I like that a lot, got a nice soft touch to it, you picked up a few fuzzies too at bottom centre :thumbup:

What's your secret to that smooth gradient look?

Well worth adding the colour Mike but I think you need a lot more if you're using unbinned. For reasons I don't understand fully you need to match each channels exposure time to the luminence to get strong colour. Binned would have been perfect.
