NGC6960 and surrounding


#1

Finally got something I’m proud of. 30 hours of Ha/OIII and RGB. All captured with SGP and processed in Pixinsight. One thing I learned on this one was that the STF8300 should have flats shot around 42,000 ADU. I dunno why, but someone posted this tidbit over at CN and it really helped flatten my image.

One question, how can I ‘add’ a sequence to a framing and mosaic wizard? Can I plot the main image so I can add to it? I didn’t realize I was in line with the eastern veil and should probably go get it.

Excellent work Chris! Thanks for sharing.


#3

Ken, is there a way to ‘add’ to a mosaic that you know of? I missed the eastern veil by about one frame and would like to add it… but I don’t really want to mess up what I have either.


#4

I cannot think of a good way to do this with exacting precision. Some “eyeballing” may be required.


#5

What about duplicating and modifying some of the existing mosaic tile targets? You should be able to determine the RA & DEC step size between the existing tiles and then modify the center coordinates for the new targets with an increased or decreased step.
