Description

Living in the Southern Hemisphere doesn’t give too much of an opportunity to shoot north but decided to give it a go peeking between neighboring rooftops manage to catch a glimpse of this beauty with only a total integration of 2h20m due to limited visibility. 11xHa,12xOiii,5xSii 5 min subs @unity gain . Calibrated with 20x darks, flats and Bias frames.

Imaged with SGPRO, PHD2 and processed in Pixinsight and PS. Imaged over 2nights last week under bortle 6 skies from the backyard to see what I can get. Great Ha signal but I think I need to up the gain in o3 and s2 and longer subs?
