Second shot with my ASI1600MM
Got some decent data on my ASI1600 over the last couple of days - Did the stacking in APP and final processing in Startools - The initial image out of APP was very good, I am just more used to the StarTools flow up to this point.
The stacking and calibration in APP is excellent - having clean data helps, but the default settings for stacking made it come out pretty well.
Nice! Yes, clean data will always work the best indeed. The colors seem a little off, but that may be just personal taste. Did you use color calibration or is this all mono data?
Its all mono - The colors looked ok to me, probably like you said, just comes down to personal taste. Never sure what the "Right" colors would be for something like this, but i used the Artistic color setting in start tools, not the scientific one.
Other thing is that the ASI1600 is a little weaker in Red (Lower QE) than the other channels, so I gathered more red data, but I think some of my other color frames were not taken by SGP since i had a fairly uneven amount of exposures.
Compared to my last image of this, with my Nikon D5100, and there is a lot more detail, my DSLR pic is nice and sharp, but it did not get much nebulosity. Needed more time obviously
