    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

    As always you can click on the image then click again for the hi res version

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