|It has been a while
since my last mosaic. Here is
a mosaic formed from six frames of the Heart Nebula. This shot is far
from finished as so far I only have 60 minutes per frame and need a
couple of hours.
MosaicEngine controlled the mount, pointing the scope to the correct position for each frame. The frames were assembled into the mosaic using Microsoft's ICE and processed in Images Plus. As I add more data I'll repost a version with less noise reduction and more detail. I continue to be amazed at what the combination of the Zwo ASI2600MC Pro and the Optolong L-eNhance filter is able to pull out of bright urban skies.
