Dont like them clouds hovering about.....

But when it gets dark the clouds usually clear then you can see something like this :grin:


BTW it looks much better  full-size as a 16bit image.

Nice image Andy,was that image from your recent stay in Galloway.

Any capture details!.


Captured on the last night of the stay. They sky was variable as some  of Adrian's clouds kept popping back to spoil the view. 

Scope was AG12 with SBIG 8300M and SBIG filter wheel with Astrodon LRGB  filters mounted on an EQ6.

Guiding was from a Lodestar in a Starlight Xpress large OAG.

Software was EQMOD, PHD v2 and Nebulosity v3.  Processing was DSS v3.34 then Photoshop CS2.  Tried CS6 but could not get the same results :sad:

All subs were 300secs. will have to check back with how many subs made it through to the image. I started off with 25 of each but as guiding failed after about 5 hours a lot went into the bin.

There were no flats as my light panel was too bright.

I am slowly working my way through Ron Wodaski's Zone system so I have only applied levels and the first basic adjustment curve.  Lots lots more still to read and apply :laugh: but at least I have some data to play with.  LRGB combination came from an SGL thread and Steve Richard's  Making Every Photon Count.
