Ha images were focused,
acquired, reduced, aligned, and combined in CCDSoft.
Color images were focused
using the camera's live view (and Bahtinov mask). Frames were aligned
and combined using ImagesPlus and adjusted in Photoshop.
Ha frames were aligned
in RegiStar and combined in Photoshop. The adjusted color image
and Ha mosaic were also aligned in RegiStar and combined in Photoshop.
The final image was further adjusted. Topaz DeNoise was then applied.
