I still cannot get rid of comet registration alignment by PixInSight, thus just played a hand allineation or R(zr) G(zg) and B(zi) channels in photohop of comet starless image, and then adding stars as new layer in “screen” blending mode. After some research about Palomar 48 inches Samuel Oschin Schmidt telescope and ZTF camera I found here : https://www.ztf.caltech.edu/ztf-camera.html
Apart of aesthetic results, what is important is that if pixinsight works in annotation after platesolving, I hypothesize it could works also in comet registration after a proper platesolving of single channels masterframe; I’m going to try asap.
PixInSight had some problem in platesolving because of peculiar fits header, thus also was impossible to perform image registration > comet registration. I thus worked just by star registration of the few subframes and then play an image integration for each filter: I assigned R channel to zr filter, G to zg and B to zi even I suspect other choose may be taken. After that I made starless and star version for each channel and integrate in pixinsight the starry master, and in photoshop the starless master handly stacking rgb comet.
I finally played some photoshop tricks for pixel fixing, framing, dust lanes enhancing, etc… I would like a more wider field of view for a next attempt, but I confess to me is simply exciting and so so funny to make post-production over these enormous scientific quality data from such powerful instruments! As when I play with JWST or Hubble data (cfr. https://mast.stsci.edu/portal/Mashup/Clients/Mast/Portal.html ) I’m simply totally stoked! Thanks again to Taras!!!
IC 2574 in HaR OiiiG OiiiB, William Optics Redcat 51, ASI1600mm Pro at Bin1, -20C: RGB subframes of 60″, Ha and Oiii subframes of 180″
Ha is used as integration of R channel, Oiii as integration of G and B channel by PixelMath, PixInSight.
IC 2574 (Coddington’s Nebula) – Intermediate Spiral(SABm) Galaxy in Ursa Major, an intermediate Spiral(SABm) Galaxy in the Ursa Major constellation, situated at about 17.000 Ly from us, appears close to the northern celestial pole and, as such, it is visible for most part of the year from the northern hemisphere.
It is an outlying member of the M81 Group and is currently forming stars; a UV analysis showed clumps of star formation 85 to 500 light-years (26 to 150 pc) in size.
