Re: Fun with a One-shot-color CCD
hehe ... I've been having fun with my old ST-4000XCM as well, shooting through the light pollution of Los Angeles while not leaving home. I never thought it was worth even trying, but my first efforts turned out well enough that I decided I would do a Messier survey from home. I've collected 47 Messiers now, grabbing 30 minutes of data from each. I'm not even bothering to take out the sky glow gradient -- leaving them in as a badge of adversity.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In the process I've become significantly more adept at setup, alignment, point mapping, and processing.
Usually the giveaway on an OSC image: there ain't much blue. I know I could pick out a few Ron. :)
