Description

This image is the result of a collaborative project over the last 16 weeks with Lee  @Lee

We combined images from our respective sets of equipment ((Samyang 135mm + ASI183MM and RedCat 51 + ASI1600MM) plus (Samyang 135mm + ASI183MM and RedCat 51 + Atik460ex/ASI290MM)).

In total we collected 1890 mins of Ha, 1600 mins of OIII and 600 mins of SII covering the six panes of the mosaic - that’s a total of 69 hours or 2.875 days imaging time

The mosaic was pre-processed and assembled in AstroPixelProcessor and processed in PixInsight.

The benefit of the collaboration goes far beyond just collecting the data. We have shared our experiences, positive and negative, on data collection, data evaluation, data processing and image critique and it is fair to say we have both benefitted from the experience far more than we anticipated at the outset.
