Triangulum Galaxy, M33, LHaRGB
My latest image on Triangulum Galaxy was taken on 23rd October 2020. The total time was 2.2 hours (60x30s L 1x1, 30x30s R G B 2x2, 12x300s Ha 1x1). Gears are QHY163M, Takahashi TSA 120, AP Mach 1. Pre-processing, processing, channels combination, color calibration, and applying Ha data to RGB were performed in APP. Luminance and chrominance linear images were denoise and combined, then stretched. Minor adjustments were applied in Photoshop Lightroom.
This is the final image from the same data when using LHaRGB preset in RGB combine tool.
Wonderful, very nice detail and signal (+ I love galaxies). 🙂
Well that's a very personal choice I think, they both look wonderful in detail and signal. I think, personally, I like the first one slightly better.
