Description

In March I answered a questionary here at Astrobin and won this LRGB data set from Lloyd at Deep Sky West, which I have now processed.

Imaging telescope or lens: Astro-Physics Riccardi-Honders 305mm

Imaging camera: SBIG STX-16803

Mount: Astro-Physics AP 1600 with encoders

Guiding camera: Lodestar Autoguider X2

Frames:

Astrodon Blue Tru-Balance E-Series Gen 2: 24x600"

Astrodon Green Tru-Balance E-Series Gen 2: 22x600"

Astrodon Luminance Tru-Balance E-Series Gen 2: 26x600"

Astrodon Red Tru-Balance E-Series Gen 2: 24x600"

Total integration: 16.0 hours

Location: Deep Sky West, Rowe, New Mexico, United States

This was fantastic data virtually without noise but the complexity of the target made it quite a challenge to process, and this is unlikely to be the final version from me.

Comments and Suggestions most welcome

Cheers, Göran

Version B: A bit brighter

Version C: A bit more star colour
