Description

ASI294MC Pro @ -15C


63x120s



I had to keep the processing fairly simple to avoid bringing out background blotchiness.

Used Windorized Sigma Clipping rather than linear fit clipping for flats and darks and used 7 sigma rejection for darks.



Processed with:


Dynamic Crop


DBE


PCC


HT


CT - contrast & saturation


TGV


MT to shrink stars


CT
- contrast

plus some final touch up in photoshop



I'm not entirely happy with htis but I've been playing with it for more than a month so it's time to move on for now.
