Description

A first serious attempt to get to grips with LRGB filters. The conditions were not ideal with NGC7789 on one side of a tree and the moon on the other. At last the LRGB colour balancing using ratios has been tested.

The RGB ratio used was 1.7 : 1 : 1.5. RGB was bin 2x2 with 60s exposures. L was bin 1x1 with 90s exposures. The ratios were derived based on the work done by Brian Morgan at https://u235.herokuapp.com/#color-balance-instructions.

AstroDMx Capture for Linux (Fedora 30) v0.62.57 was used for data acquisition. This was a good workout for the newly released version.

Calibration, registration, stacking and RGB Composition were carried out with Siril. Final (minimal) processing used Gimp.

It will be interesting to revisit this target when there is no moon.
