Description

Here's a try at combining narrowband and broadband data from the Flaming Star Nebula (IC405).

Version B: The data from the duo narrowband filter was used as a luminance layer and color came from broadband data.

Version D: H(HO)O processing from duo narrowband data with some RGB stars.

PS. Try multi star guiding in PHD2! Never got a total RMS under 0.7 arcseconds, but did so with multi star guiding activated.
