    Default M45 rummaging through data...



    Here is something I threw together from some frames taken with the 8" f4 astrograph. As if the spikes don't give it away

    Anyhow I did not have any blue filter frames so I used the lum stack as a proxy with an RGB combine in PI. Just for fun.

    The results were pretty pleasing.

    I did not spend a whole lot of time on this, still a little gritty and did not do any decon. But even thought the colors are false It's kinda pretty

    For a cheat, the color looks very nice to me. Nice dustiness, and all that reflection. Very nice, Tom.
