Description

High focal length attempt on the Trunk in IC1396. This year I am going for high focal length images of bright targets. This is Ha only data captured with a waxing moon and that has impacted the signal quality. I will keep adding to it but I need to get OIII and SII if I can.

At this scale, it is nice to be able to see some of the details in the dark dust and is a change from the usual FOV of this popular target.

Version E: 7/15/2017: Rain in forecast from today. I started the OIII and SII channel last night but only managed 14x5 mins each and the seeing was bad resulting in bad guiding. OIII is essentially non existent here and SII is quite faint as well.

I wanted to do a quick process to see how it will turn out. This is hopefully not a final version. I really need to fix the stars (horrible halos due to bad OIII stars) and beef up Ha a bit more. But I still like the overall feel of the image.
