First try at RGBHOO on Heart & Soul
Shot 2.5 hours with a ZWO ASI2600MC and the OPT TPO UltraWide APO using the ZWO Duo Narrowband filter on the MoveShootMove tracker. Just wanted to try breaking out and playing with the Ha and OIII. Surprised to see an actual improvement in the final image just by breaking out all channels and combining them back.
Took a single stack and processed as Ha-OIII Color, Mono, Extract Ha and Extract OIII. Then used Combine RGB with; Color as RGB and Mono as L, then added Ha and OIII layers.
That is a very good start of what could become a truly beautiful picture. It looks to me as if the nebula doesn't fade naturally into the background which probably can be solved by collecting more data. Do you plan to do so next autumn and winter?
