Description

My Christmas present this year was a Zwo ASI 1600MM Pro with a 8 position filter wheel. I centered on Merope and made the mistake of letting it get horribly blown-out, so of course my main photo product was proving that you can get reflections and microlens artifacts if you try.

The good news is that the un-stretched high intensity image captured IC 349!

I'll only show the L channel for now. I think I just blew out Merope and caused the reflections, but it is also possible I got a bum set of filters.

Description: The Luminance filter data is the only good data from this test. I do not know what could cause the black filled star at the bottom of the frame.
