Hi Jasem, and thanks :)

Last time I tried the streaming in INDI was ~ two months ago, not sure if I was on 1.8.7 then, or when 1.8.7 was out?
When I tried it then, everything seamed to work. All the controlls, and streaming preview. However when I opened the file in ser player it was just a lot of noise. (It did roughly show the outline of the moon, but no usable image).

I can test it again next time I get some clear skies, and the moon is there. Longtime weather only shows rain, so might be a while.

Magnus created a new topic ' Moon 01.12.2020 in L(HDR)RGB' in the forum. yesterday

Full mon from Dec 1th 2020 in LRGB

For this integration I collected a total of 10.000 subs in the .ser format. At Unity gain and -25c i shoot 2.000 subs for LRGB each. I then shoot 2.000 L with a gain of 100, for a HDR L channel. All RGB subs was at 2ms exposure, and all L channel was at 1ms.

Each .ser file was stacked in Autostackert!, then aligned using the FFTRRegistration in PixInsight.

The L channels was combined with HDRComposision, then some curves and unsharp mask. RGB channels was combined, saturated and added to the L channel with pixel math.

I then upscaled the image by 2x.

Scope Equinox 80 PRO APO
ZWO Asi 1600mm-c @-25c
ZWO LRGB filters
Need to get a 2x barlow for these full moon nights :)

Hope you like, and Clear skies!

Magnus created a new topic ' Pelican ic5070 in SHO (5h 35min)' in the forum. 5 days ago

At the moment I have no known bugs related to the operation of my obsy! Last mont I have been imaging nearly every clear night with hardly any setup overhead. Just point and shoot :)

I feel I'm re-learning some processing skills with PixInsight after a few seasons with little light collected on my part.

I guess it is still a little noisy if you enlarge it, but to me it looks good at the moment. A v2 is never impossible, but need some feedback on the current situe.



All subs are 300sec @Unity and -25c with the zwo asi 1600mm-c

At the moment calibrated with darks and bias, but will try to move on to darks, flats and dark flats, as I understand this is better for my CMOS camera.

Not all projects need to take a lot of time.

Pelican nebula only 1h 35min (19 x300 sec)

Exuinox 80 PRO APO, Asi 1600mm-c @Unity, and -25c
Darks, and bias

Imaged with a forecast of clouds, but I got bonus clear skies :cheer:

A target to image that is not so faint, so you get a lot of satisfaction for not that much work.
Only stacked and stretched (in PixInsight)

Clear Skies everyone :)
