Re: February 2020

Thanks Brian, appreciate it. I have a series of clear nights coming up and I'm debating whether to shoot more of M97 or switch to a new target. I'm limited however, to mostly the North Eastern part of the sky, due to surrounding apartment blocks, and there aren't many other nebulas up there right no...

It really separated the nebulosity and lifted it from the background, tightened the star shapes and brought out some really nice colors. The color data was acquired last month with my ASI290MC-Cool thro...

Re: M42 Astro Pixel Processor 5 session stack

Cheers Dave, I'm constantly evolving my thinking of how to optimize dual-shot astrophotography with mono/osc cameras and have some exciting new ideas I'll be sharing results with hopefully soon. The above work of yours is very intriguing indeed and I'll surely be taking a closer look.

Thanks :)
