Description

This is an image made from two different acquisition sets. The base frame comes from an Officina Stellare UCRC f5.4 telescope coupled with a FLI 11002 camera and Astrodon filters. The shot was made under very good sky in Austria in emberger elm at 1800mt in 2012. The second set comes from a Takahashi Epsilon 210 f3 telescope coupled with a QSI683WSG8 and Astrodon filters + Ha5nm acquired under a very good sky too in Italy at vallefiorita during two years astrocamp in August 2012/13.

I've slightly reduced the Hi-Res from the UCRC and slightly enlarged the datas from the Tak.

The image is an LLRGB+Ha of about 22 hours total exposure.

I've spent my efforts on the processing the images trying to dig out the most possible contrast and microcontrast working carefully in different areas at different scales then using pre and post deconvolution.

This is the result, hope You like it.
