Another LBN437..
« on: Oct 19, 2019, 15:47:16 »
Bit of a quick one this.
Mount: NEQ6, Rowan belt mod
Telescope: RH200 (f/3 600mm FL astrograph)
Camera: ASI 183mm PRO binned 2x2 (1.64 arcsec/pixel)
Filters: Astrodon 31mm LRGB
Observing conditions: Very patchy, lots of cloud.
Capture software: TheSkyX

Frames: 48 x 30s each of RGB plus 37 x 60s Luminance all binned 2x2.  In total 24 min each of RGB and 37 min of Luminance.
(I had intended to get 150+ frames of each but it didn't work out this time)

Stacking and calibration in MaximDL 5.2 and Image processed in Pixinsight.  I don't think I can do much else with this other than adding a lot more data and Ha.

Full size:

Thanks for looking

It looks good Robert but you're right that you need more data.

I blame the October weather  :-(

Very smooth, and nice stars. Your data is sharper than mine. I think we'll both be spending more time on this target as it's really interesting but needs lots of subs to do it justice.

Very nice colours Robert  8)  These dusty objects always needs more data; no mater how much one spends on them... :-?
