Live Stack with Photoshop Edits 1/15 to 1/16 2019

Hi Folks

Some more Live Stacking last night from north East Georgia, USA. Night started very clear and cloud free but as soon as I was setup and got going we had some high wispy clouds roll through. The rig and SharpCap just pushed through with, for me, acceptable results for a live stack.

For anyone that tuned in to the broadcast on NSN, apologies! Seems something on the websites back end crashed and didn't allow the broadcast to continue. Seems to be back up now and next broadcast I'll attempt is Sunday 1-20-19 around 8:00 PM EST. Will attempt to get some shots of the lunar eclipse.

All images live stacked, settings can be found following the image links to flickr.com

Equipment: RC 6 inch, Astro-Physics CCDT67 focal reducer, F/6.786 FL 1031 mm, ZWO ASI294 MC Pro camera, iOptron CEM60 mount, 50 mm Stellarvue guide scope, ZWO ASI120MM guide camera + PHD2

Some images have 2nd copy that was tweaked in Photoshop for color balance, noise reduction, remove hot pixels, crop, contrast and saturation.
