Continuing with the Explore
Scientific/David Levy 6 inch Mak-Newt. Added significant time,
total of 69 five minute subs, acquired and calibrated
with warm pixel conversion and first color in Nebulosity,curves
and gradients in Photoshop. The scope is a 152mm f/4.8 piggybacked
on the 12 inch LX200 classic.
The moon was near new and the sky was near perfect for this location....
stable to an arc second, but visual magnitede of only about 4.5...
I like the influence of
some H beta and OIII around the edges. I wouldn't have noticed
without the recent
images with unmodified cameral.... there is some small flexure
that causes the dreaded noise streaks evident in the full size
Canon 350d Hap at prime,
guided with a DSI pro and PHD on the 12 inch at f3.3
