NGC7000 + IC5070

Recommended Posts

I'm still trying to find the best way to incorporate HO with RGB without it looking like a Cecil B DeMille movie poster.

This is 20x120s of Ha and OIII combined with 6x60s of R,G and B from an ASI1600 (139 gain, 56 offset) with WO-ZS71; fully processed in PI and combined in PS using layers and masks.

Despite my best efforts and following advice gratefully received from others 57Cyg still boasts a good sized case of blue bloat; hopefully it doesn't detract too much.

As ever CC always welcome.

Thanks for looking.

I did have a couple of sessions at gain 200 but in the end I did not see any great benefit and it just complicates the whole business of calibration frames. In the end I have decided to stick with unity (139) gain and an offset of 56 (based on advice given in a post by @vlaiv).

Lovely image, can't say the bright star ruins it for me, I rather like it.
