With all the doom and gloom that is going around, not to mention the crappy weather that keeps hitting the UK shores from the Atlantic, I thought I would try and squeeze out an image to prove that self-isolation can be fun. I have put my QSI CCD away for a while and I’m experimenting with a color APS-C CMOS camera. I used a combination of dual narrowband and IDAS light pollution filters. Processed in PixInsight, I had to separate the color channels, remove the stars with the brilliant StarNet module and re-assemble after processing. The imaging setup was faintly ridiculous, a pier-mounted Paramount MX, with a teeny-weeny William Optics Redcat perched on top. At least their colors matched
About 10 hours exposure.
best wishes to all - stay safe
