Images focused on optimal acquisition and accurate processing with mid-range equipment from suburban locations

Edge11, Edge8, C11 on CGE-Pro or CGE, guided with MetaGuide and OAG

Edge11 on CGE-Pro is currently $7199, which is less than the cost of many mounts alone

Video guiding with OAG using QHY5L-ii and other USB video cameras

Atik 383L+ and Starlight Xpress SXVF-h9 camera

Recent image processing

Sequence Generator Pro for acquisition and focusing

No processing other than levels, unless indicated

Calibrated, aligned, stacked with custom C++ code

Photometrically calibrated colors with no manipulation of hue or saturation

No use of masks or selective manipulation

Application of levels in Photoshop CS6, and save to jpeg

Most fwhm's noted, and some images include raw sub-exposures to show the guiding performance

Earlier image processing

Maxim DL Pro for acquisition

ImagesPlus for calibration and DDP

Gentle processing with no "star rounding" or extreme colors

PhotoShop for colors and curves

Some sharpening in DDP and wavelets

Some star reduction in IP
