Description

Took NGC 7000 the first time, at various ISOs (1600, 3200, 6400) and exposure times (60s, 90s, 120s, 500s) with and without auto-guiding (PHD2) because - after upgrading to Windows 10 - my webcam was no longer supported - at least I thougt that for a while.

Threw everything in DSS, adding up to 1h 54m exposure time.

Did mosaic in DSS, you can tell there is more noise on the left border since less frames where used in that area.

Crop, stretching and wavelet (strength .5) in Fitswork.
