    Default Bicolour NGC6888



    Managed to get a few hours of imaging yesterday. Didn´t really have time to fine tune the focusing so the star shapes are a bit off in the corners. I also made a "quick-n-dirty" edit so I´ve got a bit of misalignment between the channels.

    Still, I´m really happy with this one. My next step will be to collect some R, G and B to replace the stars with RGB ones. I will also try a bit more with this bicolour editing. Tricky stuff bicolour_test_edit_22x5ha_27x5o3_II.jpg

    Thanks! Yes, I saw that but it´s a lot more visible in the Ha frames. Might redo the editing to bring it out more

    That's a gorgeous capture. Makes the crescent look like it's navigating an Ha stream.
