Cygnus Loop RASA and Optolong L-eNhance

Post by Topographic »

Cygnus Loop with RASA 8, Zwo ASI071MC Pro, Optolong L-eNhance, 158 X 40" exposures, gain 95, -5C. Darks/Bias. No flats, No guiding. Moon 80% in Bortle 3.
I stacked using Siril-ic after disappointing results with DSS ( the colour seemed to disappear)

Any criticism on processing welcome, I am slowly getting to grips with StarTools.

Thanks

David

hi
Lovely image

If you don't use flat frames, you can correct this in:
wipe > vignetting

Works well.
HTH,
Steve
