IC443 Jellyfish Nebula in HOO


Recommended Posts

Probably my last capture of the year last night.

Managed to grab about 1.5 hours worth of IC443 before it became obstructed. Stupidly didn't check the gain setting though (I'd been playing with Video settings on the ASIair when I was sorting the focuser. Doh!

That meant I had lights captured at a gain of 390. Couldn't calibrate out the Amp Glow with 120 Gain Darks so had to do a bit of faffing around in processing. Wasn't too bad by the time I had merged the 4 individual panes of both Ha and Oiii then recombining as HOO in Astro Pixel Processor but had to play around with the bottom of the frame and sacrifice some of the left side through cropping.

Would have been nice to end with a nice clean capture though. Hey ho.
