Description

ngc7662 captured in o3, R, G, B for long exposure and in RGB for short exposure. To get benefit from a higher resolution in the core, the short exposure was scaled and merged with the long exposure, so you can zoom in. The synthetic luminance is o3 with 25% Lums(a selection from RGB frames).

short exposure (lucky imaging) settings:

0.5s, 6000 frames, 50% selected, ASI290MC gain 300
