Description

This is the first image processed from data obtained from my EdgeHD 9.25" after switch over to it in April. Cloudy skies and various issues with guiding, tracking and flats made this take a while. The setup is working OK now so looking forward to continual improvements. Stacking was done with AstroPixelProcessor 1.61, which has multi-session and multi-filter processing and I think did a nice job blending together some images that were off-center. Postprocessing with PixInsight and a touchup with Russell Crowman's StarShrink filter. I like the blue and gold contrasting star colors and the degree of detail in the nucleus of the cluster. I'd like to improve on focusing, could be a bit sharper to my eyes.
