Very nice result. One never would have guessed you had to compensate for so many different attempts by Mr. (Dr.?) Murphy. -----Original Message----- From: Bernard Miller Sent: Sunday, January 01, 2012 7:28 PM To: az-observing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [AZ-Observing] Comedy of errors on IC410 Hi, I almost gave up on this image, but given the comedy of errors that went into it, I am actually quite happy with it. During imaging, my camera came loose and rotated as the scope tracked across the sky. This lead to some interesting sub-frames. I also ended up with the RGB frame rotate 20 degrees from the Luminance frame after calibration and stacking. To cap off the disaster, I captured the R and G binned 2x2, but screwed up and captured the B binned 1x1. I used Excalibrator to get the colors right (I think), and did some fancy rotating and cropping in PS to get the part of the image where the L and RGB overlapped. That explains the weird aspect ratio. Anyway, given the comedy of errors that went into capturing the data, I am amazed I got anything. I also think this image looks a lot like the Rosette Nebula.
