Wide field around SADR (gamma Cyg). This was a "parassite" photo taken while the primary scope was imaging in the area. Simple but rich! The final version was preprocessd by PixInsight instead of Deep Sky Stacker. Very simple elaboration in both cases after preprocessing. Now I understand why PI took 3,5 hrs instead of the 15' used by DSS... ^_^

Largo campo centrato su SADR (gamma Cyg). Questo è uno "scatto parassita", fatto mettendo il tele da 300 in parallelo al telescopio che stava riprendendo altro in banda stretta da quelle parti. La versione finale è stata preprocessata da PixInsight invece che da Deep Sky Stacker. C'è un motivo perché PI ci ha messo 3 ore e mezza mentre DSS se l'è cavata in 15'... dopo il preprocesso entrambe le versioni hanno avuto solo una elaborazione di base ultrarapida.
