Testing the limits of ASI183MC-Pro
Hi all, this is 10x1200sec and 5x600sec exposure calibrated with flats, darks and dark flats at Gain 23 from a bortle 8 city sky. Using a ZWO duoband filter generally makes my images very red, however playing with star calibration after integration I have managed to get some nice pink and blue hues throughout. I know my post processing needs a little work, but enjoying getting al little more savvy with what Astro Pixel Processor has to offer. I believe eventually I will be able to do nearly if not all processing in APP. If only there was noise reduction capabilities 😆
Very nice! Noise reduction, next to HDR, deconvolution and star reduction is heard loudly and a priority on our list. 🙂
Wow! Very nice. This gives me hope. I live in a Class 6 Bortle area. I started astro 1 month ago and just bought a Duo-Narrowband filter for my Fuji Camera. I tried it once and am now waiting for the sky to clear up to refine my process.
You're lucky having bortle6. I live in very west side in Ankara, my balcony faces to east. All city lights of the city, carbonmonokside particules, smut infront of me. Bortle9 and air pollution are my destiny. But I'm really happy with APP's performance, even at broadband filters. My LRGB images are not perfect but "watcable" despite of all these conditions thanks to APP. On the other hand, it needs to be improved.
