Comet Solas in Galaxy Group ACO 1367

Post by Starry Eyes »


Here's a deep field done with my 6" Newtonian. There are 19th mag galaxies visible. The Sb spiral NGC 3883 is in the uper right corner. The bifurcation in the comet was caused by the Meridian flip. Took a while. Got 0.6" RMS out of the Atlas. 50@420s. After many trials I used an extensive mask technique with the AMPGlow option within Wipe to clean up. More trials to settle on Binned 37%. Is that a 3x3 bin with the DLSR?
