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.
