Another Double Cluste

Encouraged by looking at Rick's posting I figured I'd post mine. (I know some of you think I don't really image, since I don't post much :9: ). this is 9x300s subs, no flats, just darks. The only reason for such few subs is that after this my mount went haywire.

Re: Another Double Cluste

Those are so cool. I really need to give one a go. The last couple including this one is so cool. Pretty amazing when you think about what is going on. Nice Job Mike

Re: Another Double Cluste

Looks awesome Mike. I did LRGB last year and found I liked it better with just the rgb so that was all I did this year. If it stays clear tonight I am all set to do again without the ff/reducer to see how the stars look and see the difference with the lp filter.

Re: Another Double Cluste

Thanks guys. @Rick, next time set up I'm going to try it your way and just use RGB and see what I get.

Re: Another Double Cluste

I think I will try all the clusters again this year with the rgb. I will shoot lum too but try processing with lrgb and rgb to see the difference.

Re: Another Double Cluste

What are your thoughts of using my RGB Astrodons in this light pollution. Chris says to go for it. I'm not sure if they will cut through and don't want to lose a night when they are so scant these days

Re: Another Double Cluste

You’ll never know unless you give it a shot. I’m with Chris and say go for it. I live about 35 miles west of NYC and Newark NJ. My town is fairly small but I think my skies are relatively good. I would say I border on a red/yellow/orange zone and have never used an LP filter.

Re: Another Double Cluste

Well my Double cluster was Astrodon rgb with no lp filter and I am in a red/white zone. I did notice a difference last year between lp and no lp.

With lp I could take a longer sub which too me meant more details. Especially on M31 and M33 and other galaxies.
