So having tried the theory the other night with the WO FLT98 and Atik 314L OSC camera the clear hours last night gave me a chance to try and put it all into practice,


Heres the first go


M81 Bodes Galaxy. Just under 3 hours of 8 minute subs, guided, stacked and calibrated in Images Plus and processed in PS. No flattener reducer so its at quite a long FL at F7 to get some image scale. A little bit of cropping for composition.


Hope you like it, Ive still got a bit of compositing to do on teh core with shorter subs but thats it for today.

Thanks folks Im pleased with it. I have been trying to get a decent close up of this galaxy for the past 2 years, weather and conditions plus a few mishaps have always got in the way but it all came together that night. The colour camera made alot of difference, I aint got the patience or weather for lrgb
