IC443 - a change from the comet


Recommended Posts

Captured over two nights this week. It comprises 23x 300s subs processed in PI and tweaked in PS CS3.

I used an Altair 102 EED Ascent refractor, an Altair Hypercam 26C with an IDAS NBZ filter for all subs. Mounted on an iOptron CEM 60.

Processing was fairly standard, I used a luminance mask to help control the background with many cloned stages to try this-n-that to see how it went...

Final tweak in PS using colour range and some feathering to lift the darker parts of the nebula.

I'll add more subs should the weather gods smile on me!

Thanks for looking
