Description

Comparison of benefit of using lucky imaging versus long exposure with the same optical instrument.
long exposure performed with ASI174MM-cooled for RGB channels with C8 + focal reducer
long exposure in Halpha with my new acquisition ASI1600MM-cooled pro with C8 + focal reducer
lucky imaging with my new ASI290MC and C8 (no focal reducer and no guiding)
I did first a L synthetic/Ha + HaRGB (long exposure)
I replaced the L channel with lucky imaging one and added the previous captured Ha
The resolution is amazingly improved. For the purpose of the comparison I cropped the long exposure to fit it with the smaller size sensor of the ASI290MC
