Description

Shot over 3 nights but I forgot to turn TEC on the last night, so only 2 nights integration time : (
First attempt at RGB (10% each channel) and narrowband to get better star colors. O3 = R, Ha = B, synthetic G + RGB for the stars. Only darks, still need to add flats and flat darks... ; )

B

NB without the RGB. Think I'll add a layer mask to get color on the bright stars in the center later.

C

reintegrated Ha and S2 in APP for better star colors + high pass sharpen in PS and very slight LM for tadpoles. Also captured 2 hours worth of Oiii last night but humidity was 95-98% so not sure if it will be worth integrating yet, hope so!
