Western Veil Nebula Challenge
« on: 2019 August 05 23:16:14 »
If anybody would like to take a stab at my image of the Western Veil here is my FITS File

https://www.dropbox.com/s/3a3fd2la3qa6kzw/Stack_16bits_30frames_450s.fits?dl=0

And below is the post processing image I got out of PixInsight following a You Tube Video on using Pixinsight processing M42 the Orion Nebula.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/z5gcqs6ojntsbnr/NGC6960.tif?dl=0

I am still a beginner so be nice.  I have had very good luck with other things like M42 and M51 but I have a lot of blue and green lines in this image which I am assuming is noise?

Not really, nothing is in focus, its not worth trying with this data

I did a quick run through:

Short version:

  - needs better focus
  - dithering would help a lot
  - get better at calibration to remove artifacts like hot pixels
  - don't oversaturate anything if you can help it, or build an HDR strategy
