Description

Eastern Veil Nebula (C33)

My second image with my new Tak Baby Q, taken over two nights and totalling 9h 15mins of usable subs with the ASI533MC-Pro and L-eXtreme filter. Also my first image using AstroPixelProcessor to stack and stretch with some minor tweaks with Photoshop. The integration was done with no calibration frames although I dither with APT/PHD2 and the lack of amp glow from the ASI533 means darks are redundant. I removed the slight vignetting with APP as I don't have any flat frames as yet. 

If I get enough clear skies I may build a mosaic of the full Cygnus loop.

Any comments will be most welcome.

Clear skies.
