Description

This image is a composite of 32 x 300s taken with my Samyang 135mm + ASI183MM-Pro and 27 x 300s taken at the same time with my RedCat 51 + ASI1600MM-Pro. With the Moon at 97% I thought it best to settle with just Ha rather than spoil a potentially good image with some dodgy OIII and SII.

Processing to achieve a consistent background proved to be a challenge but APP's light pollution removal tool did the trick. Thereafter it was into PI and using Starnet v2 to produce a starless image prior to recombining with a star image processed separately.

If ever we get clear skies here with no Moon I will try to get some OIII and SII to bring some colour to the party. That said the Ha starless image is quite dramatic and shows well the nebulosity in this region.

Thanks for looking. Adrian
