Sh2-240 A work in progress as it set before I could complete

Recommended Posts

I had hoped to finish this last night but a short snow shower right at the start finished that thought. I had planned to get a mosaic of nine panels completed, 5 x 300s per panel. In the end I captured seven complete panels and 3 subs on one other which I've omitted at this stage. I want not only to capture the remaining panels but also to do this again and double up the sub count.


Scope: RASA 8

Camera: ASi 522 Pro cooled OSC (used with an IDAS NB-1 filter)

Mount iOptron CEM 60 standard ( guided via a TS 80mm guidescope and ASi 120mm guide camera)

Processing in PI for the individual panekl stacks and saving them as Tiff's, then into PS for assembly and a play with the colour.

Update on the process - run the panels through a mix of PI and APP.

The separte subs for each panel were run through PI to first stack then DBE was applied to each stack, then saved as fit files.

The fit files were then loaded into APP in mosaic mode to be combined into the 7 of 9 configuration. Saved as both fit and tiff files, taken back into PI for colour work....
