Description

After some editing I decided to start this project here now. The goal is to capture the whole Veil Nebula area here by adding subs as I am able to shoot them. Still a lot to go and still a lot noise here and there but we are getting there :) I really like how AstropixelProcessor stitches the images together. Especially the LNC does a great job in equalising the background. Watch this space ;)

B

Added more lights from yesterday. Encountered a problem with AstroPixelProcessor with these subs (or some settings that I have made wrong) so had to discard some and do the "none mosaic" integration. Mabula from APP is very helpful and will look into it

C

Thanks to Mabula I was able to fix my settings for registration. Here is the latest full mosaic of my collected subs so far

D

Background too dark

E

We are getting there, added 40 more lights the last two nights to get the eastern part together

F

Some more editing, colors, background. Also this is not Star Color Caibrated to leave the correct color of the nebula
