My effort from Derry last night - once I remembered to remove the cover from the field flattener. Doh.
I know the North America Nebula is done to death, but this is my first time imaging it, and also my first time trying the Triad filter with my Nikon. I'm in the middle of the city but I was able to take 5 min subs! I processed in PixInsight, but didn't even have to do background extraction. I used photometric colour calibration to restore natural colour and then just did a bit of mild tinkering. I'm impressed by the Triad filter on my first try.
Comments welcome - maybe I should try a star mask and try to bring out star colours?
22 X 5 min subs - 1hr 50min integration
PixInsight for calibration / registration / processing
Mount - Vixen AXD2
Scope - TEC 180FL
Camera - Nikon D750
I'm still transitioning from an unmodified Canon 200D to an Altair Astro 183C pro. I think this might be my best image yet, and the first time I have tried a mosaic.
Its made of two panels, each panel has 20x120s + 30x60s. Stacked and stitched in Astro Pixel Processor and edited in PS CC 2018. I'm pretty pleased!
Scope is a SW ED80 DS pro (reduced to 480mm, f/6) on a HEQ5 pro. Guided with a QHY5L-II in my finderscope.
