Description

This is my second attempt to image the Soul nebula. I gathered my data in early November of 2020 but just now had some time to process it. I used APP in conjunction with PI (in baby steps).

Last year I tried this target with my 60D and a Rokinon 135 mm lens.

This year I used my little apo scope plus the 60D. This attempt has left me wanting more. I am seeing some horizontal banding from the chip of the Canon, and will likely need to try to process it out with a dedicated PI tool.

Next time I will try my new 2600mc osc camera.

Thank you for looking.
