Description

OK, this is a first go at the data I gathered last night on different DSO's - the Flame nebula being the second on my list. Treating the image on PixInsight is a challenge. The result here is - I suspect - far from what the actual data contains.
A total of 20 frames, from 30 sec to more than 300. Only this time I set the iso half way, at 3200. My first version - at 6400 - although containing only 7 frames, is almost - not quite - as detailed as this one. Sweet spot, where are you ! Here though, my align was more accurate, so the stars are round and more obvious.
Depth of field : better than mag. 16.60 (downloading a new catalogue, mine stops at 16.50 and this picture shows more...)
