Following on from my Horsehead nebula in mono thread here I was quite happy with it as it was.... then ..... @pietervdv was a very naughty boy and suggested that perhaps I *may* like to do another pan

Thanks guys for all of your comments .... The reason for no RGB is the lack of time plain and simple and I have looked and I have the pane to the upper right already in Ha and would just need lower ri

Now, what a good idea!  It has made an already great image even better. Very impressive! Pieter

Nice work Sara, the extra pane makes it a more interesting image.  

Question on the dual rig - how are you managing the two cameras?  Are they run intelligently through a single piece of software (I know SGL said they would sort this one day?) Or does it require separate application/instance?

Stunning image, Sara. This should become an apod.

The image is also very well framed in the standard sgl view, with a black frame and a thin gray line. You might consider printing and framing this way.

The only niggle I have is the satellite trail at the bottom, just off centre moving upwards. I am a stickler for them :) 

I didn't see that!! I think it's part of a column defect I have -It's all sorted now thanks!! :)

I'm running 2 instances of SGP - One camera acts as the main controlling the mount, flips etc and the other is just a slave all night..... It worked perfectly :)

Do you get no issues when software instances get out of sync?  EG a refocus or download takes longer on one than other?  The other then could still be finishing a sub and the main software is slewing or similar?

Sure it's all out of sync, but what does it matter? It's using a separate guider, so both scopes can refocus when they like without affecting the guiding........ The camera's do download at a different speed, but that doesn't matter...... I will lose two subs max from the slave camera at flip or target change and that's worse case scenario.

OK cool, that's where I got to as well, sacrifice a few subs for the greater good!  Just wondered if you had worked out something I have not yet......

Nope! Nothing that groundbreaking!!! There's a couple of software programmes that do dual capture - Prism  for example..... but I didn't fancy being a pioneer!!! :D  I'm not that smart :)

Yes looked at that but did not like the interface. SGP said they were going to release then never saw it.  Shame, not that complex afterall.

Wow that is probably as good as anything i have ever seen. Just stunning detail. And i think i would be tempted to keep it mono although those gorgeous reds associated with this area are tempting i do think the detail just looks so good in mono.
