Modified Canon T3 DSLR using new workflow: taking images using Nebulosity in RAW - process each sub with floats, darks, etc. - colorize - stack - Raw Therapy. This allows for better sub correction when done in B&W, better resolution, and 1/3 the image size (23 MB compared to 70 MB color). Always experimenting, no two results are alike as no two sky or equipment conditions are ever alike.
