Description

ASI6200MM + 130GTX + Field Flattener- 300s x 124
ASI2600 + Stowaway + 0.8x Telecompressor- 180s x 205

I have a new appreciation for this target.  Usually it is imaged in narrowband and there are not a ton of broadband examples out there.  I never realized just how dense the starfield is around this target, although with it's location it should not be a surprise.  

It was quite a battle finding the balance between stars and nebula, but thanks to RC Astro StarX I was able to process each component separately.  

This is my second project using my GTX to gather Lumanance and my Stowaway to Gather Color Data.  Once again I have the annoying fringe of color on stars where the slightly distorted Stowaway field wouldn't perfectly register with the GTX.  I'm doubling down on my efforts to dial out tilt of any sort, and maybe this will help a bit.  

C&C Welcome.
