Mosaic made by 9 panels, with starless master in narrowband, SHO palette, and stars integration in RGB.

Narrowband subframes of 180″, 300″ and 600″, RGB subframes at 60″ exposure.

New workflow focused about IC1805 with narrowband and RGB data addiction.

AFter PixInSight normal workflow, parallel for SHO, HOO and RGB integration, I reached the point of star separation from nebuloisty. Starless SHO and HOO files was developed with color masks and curves transofrmation in PixInSight, thus finally cleaned and polished by NoiseXTerminator and BlurXTerminator.

This is an attempt of narrowband and wideband data integration of M31 Galaxy, both set recorded on several sessions between 25/05/2023 and 28/11/2023.

Ha and Oiii subframes were recorded at 180 and 300 seconds; LRGB at 60 seconds, everything by William Optics Redcat 51 and ASI1600mm Pro at -20 C about.

I’m totally in love with Cygnus region, and try a 2 panel mosaic work focusing about NGC7000 and surroundings.

This is the second of a 2 panel mosaic focused about this region of Cygnus, so rich and beautiful! Subframes recorded between 27/05/2023 and 12/09/2023 with William Optics Redcat 51 and ASI1600mm Pro, at -20C, gain 173 and 180sec of exposition; some subframes at 300sec expecially for Halpha channel help in faint nebulosity detail emerging.

HIP102483 Cygnus region in narrowband, SHO and Hbeta channels.

This is the first of a couple of panel mosaic of narrowband recording focused about NGC7000 region in Cygnus; subframes of 180sec at -20C taken between 28/05/2023 and 22/08/2023 with ASI1600mm Pro under William Optics Redcat 51, mont EQM35 Pro.

SHO classic palette integration, with annotations

Ha Oiii and Hbeta palette integration

My preferred integration, with Sii for red channel, Ha for green and Oiii + Hbeta for blue.
