Description

In my quest for learning how to nicely add Ha to RGB data (usually from a DSLR) I've been playing with three sets of data.

1. 16x900s Ha QHY22
2. 36x180s Nikon D7200
3. 22x120s QHY163M

To make some processing quicker I've worked on a smaller crop of the larger region just as a way of seeing how it could turn out before I start on the larger area. Pretty happy with the result for the most part but I would like to get better stars in the final version.
