M81 from March


Trying out the forum image postings as well, I know the example post shows from Astrobin but this a PhotoBucket link…

An image SGPro has made possible, little short of data and still have some mount/guiding issues to resolve but pleased with result so far.

This is M81 taken between midnight and 1.30am on the 22 March 14.

EdgeHD 8" on a iOptron iEQ45 using a QHY8L with Hutech IDAS P2 LP filter.

18 x 300s subs + 29each of Bais, Darks and Flats
Capture software SGPro
Pre-Processing in Nebulosity3
Post-Processing in PixInsight/PS




There is a lot of detail in there. I like the color too.
