Description

Capture of the M8 & M20 from last night & early this morning using new UHC clip in filter for my DSLR. Although this is a very busy part of the Milky Way, the UHC amazingly showed much more contrast as well as vivid and saturated colours. Normalisation, calibration and majority of processing in Pixinsight and some noise smoothing & desaturation in Photoshop. 21 Sep & 22 Sep 2019. Using APT for capture of 32 images at iso800 with lens stopped to f3.5.
