Good advise regarding shades! an observatory is on the list...someday.. Glad we connected t...

Re: OSC camera single captures

Good stuff Bruce. I agree, with so little clear skies and so much light pollution around here, I cant be bothered to keep switching through filters all night and build an image that way.

Re: OSC camera single captures

Thanks for the shoutout Dave. Stacking of live stacks was a fun experiment that worked out better than I expected.

Re: M33, Vixen 81s + Atik 314E, LRGB filters

Very interesting and really nice result! I wonder what the colour balance would look like without the luminance layer (at the expense of SNR), as I always find that when I integrate luminance on emission nebula RGB, it pushes my data towards "Salmon City Pink"! :s Very interesting read from Brian as...
