Running Chicken Nebula
I did this over a few nights and now ( as of last night have more subs to add) I think at the moment it's around the 5 hour, I'm not sure as APP doesn't give total time stacked.
My processing involved integrating as RGB then splitting the channels as well as extracting Ha and Oiii , I'm slowly figuring out that if there is too much of one colour across the image applying that colour into another channel can minimise it, I'm not sure if that's right but it's working so far.
From memory I used SHO Hubble 2 for this.
Thanks for looking,
I think that is looking really nice already, it's always a bit tricky to keep the colors "natural" with combining broadband data with narrowband, but looking good. I think you should also be able to tweak the color with the HSL color tool a bit.
I was sort of going for the afternoon sunset colours, if I can get blue into my images I'm happy. Thanks for your comment Vincent, im still getting use to using APP.
