Description

Halfway through! Finally got all my Lum data together. 4 Panels with 60 subs each. Had to kick out a few due to bad guiding when I started to early and too close to the horizon. Really hope to finish the RGB and Ha data this week so I can clean the mirror end of the week and play a bit with the setup for some Moon and Planetary action. Have a look in full resolution view on NGC 206 and the center, I am quite impressed what the little 8" is capable of.

Still struggling a bit with the stitching of the mosaic. APP does a great job once you have the settings right but Local Normalization Correction didn't seem to work very well on this one so I had to mask / level / and curves quite a bit to get the background nice and flat.

Comments and suggestions are very welcome!
