Description

My latest iteration of Andromeda is a combination of data acquired with my QHY 16200A this year with data acquired last year with my ZWO ASI1600MM Pro. I lost a lot of FOV when introducing the ZWO data but the overall image sharpened up. I still have quite a bit of LUM data that I cant figure out how to incorporate into the image. For some reason it doesn't play nice with the Ha data. Any suggestions on how to deal with that would be appreciated.
