30 90 second subs, 10 dark, 10 flat dark, 10 flat, 10 bias using Canon T3i/600D with Optalong L-Pro Clip Filter
Telescope: Sky Watcher EvoStar ED80 on a EQ6-R Pro mount with .85 reducer/ flattener
Software used APT
for image sequence and focusing, N.I.N.A. for polar alignment, mount syncing and target slewing, PHD2 Guiding
used for stacking and PS for one tweak
Any suggestions for how I can improve the image are most welcome, specifically how to get more color. I am assuming longer exposure time and more subs. Framing is an obvious one, I ordered a rotator today that should show up next week. It's been an interesting journey getting to this point.
What you see is what you get,
Update: 13:30 I just realized I picked the wrong plan in APT
, these are 60 second subs, not 90...
