2019 November: Complete LRGB Tutorial of NGC292, The Small Magellanic Cloud by Christian Sasse, Astronomer in Charge of iTelescope.net
2019 September: Astro Pixel Processor and iTelescope.net celebrate a new Partnership!
NGC 1499 and some dust!
25x 180s, ISO 1600, 20 dark (non matching lol), 10 flat, 50 bias, astro modded Pentax K5, WO Redcat, iOptron CEM25P, and guiding via MGEN II and Astromania 50mm guidescope. Processed in APP with final tweaking in PS. The background neutralization in APP is freakin' amazing!
Nice image! Capturing "dust" is the Holy Grail for me. Sure I can capture the dust lanes of galaxies but what I really want is the smokey gray of dark nebulae against black space.
May I ask your location so I can look up your Bortle number? I don't need your street address just something like "30 miles east of Peoria, Illinois". I tell people I am "44 miles north of New York City."
