Big weekend at Warwick imaging both nights and pretty good skies, imaging with PNT200 and Rcat. Although a bit low in sky thought I would get a few subs on M45. A very quick batch process to see how it would come up with only 6x300s subs. You will see clearly some sat trails, botched attempts to fix in PS and some gradients, cant believe I actually contaminate a few subs with my headlight torch as I was setting up an imaging run with my Rcat on a second mount. Anyway still a few back focus issues and possible sensor tilt to be ironed out too but a reasonable result for little effort and one I will revisit as it gets higher in the sky.

Sharpstar PNT200 at f3.8, ASI6200MC.

Lovely. You caught that faint Ha pinkish blush in the top right area. Nice sparkling image.

There is a slight green gradient bottom left that would clean up easily with HALVG Photoshop plugin. Its free.
