Thats a great start.

Puzzled as to why you don't stack in Maxim though. 

Thanks. That's mainly as I've never tried it :lol:

you have to try it Mike.

so much easier and better than DSS.

Steve told me how to do it ages ago and I have never looked back

After struggling with guiding the other night I have swapped to PHD2 and had a quick 30mins of O3 data tonight. Stacked those badly on Maxim, then spun them all through photoshop with a 5 min sub in S2 from the other week just to see what I've got so far.

Cropped a lot to avoid the bad bits due to incorrect alignment and lack of calibration. It's just a quick test to see how it's coming along.

I think it has lost a bit of fine detail from the previous version.

Yes I agree. I need to have a good look at the processing. I think I need to look at both the alignment and levels of each channel. I am hoping for a couple of hours tonight so I can do the last channel which is a little different to the norm. It's a technique I saw the ESO using and it has a very nice hue to it. I've not seen it done here before so I'm keen to give it a bash.

I'm backing away from this target now for a while, I have bigger fish to fry.

Combination of Ha, OIII and SII all with Atik 314L+ and ED80

some calibration frames and stacked in Maxim apart from the SII which would only stack in DSS.

It was yes. I did have another plan but that went south due to incompetence on my part. I may well re visit the processing but for this year I am going to leave data gathering alone and go for something else now I have figured how to use the rig reliably.

It just goes to demonstrate what I've always thought: Getting really REALLY good deep sky images is more than just having expensive equipment. I'm really impressed with these images.
