Description

Trying out dual-rig imaging again. I think more successfully this time! Five minute exposures were taken in H-alpha and Blue with my ASI1600MM-C. Three minute exposures were taken with the QHY168C color camera. The mono frames were used as an HBB tonemap mostly for IC1283 and the reflection neb. The OSC data was added on top with a screen blending mode. Tried to keep it 'natural' looking :)
Clear skies, Nico
