Description

Dear AstroBin Community,

I took this photography at 2020-12-25. Obstacles were a lot of gradients and a frozen lens.

This lead to a filtering (reduction) of color during exposures.

It shows the Milky Way with the following constellations:

Cygnus + Lacerta + Cassiopeia + Cepheus.

Developed with PixInsight during several nights. What a wonderful tool!

I tried in endless nights some variants of image processing with PI

which I now find great to share with you!

Group of 60 Bias frames (60 active), BINNING : 1

Group of 32 Dark frames (32 active), BINNING : 1, Exposure : [60.00s]

Group of 60 Flat frames (60 active), BINNING : 1, Filter : NoFilter, Exposure : 0.01s

Group of 94 Light frames (94 active), BINNING : 1, Filter : NoFilter, Exposure : [ 60.00s]

The session was 2020-12-25 [60s, F5.6, ISO1600, Z6, 50mm] [94].
