LRGB with Mono Atik Infinity - Bubble nebual
« on: October 11, 2016, 01:50:35 PM »
I wanted to try an experiment with the Infinity.  I used an LRGB filter set with my Infinity.  These are 30 second exposures stacked 6 times for each filter.  The I brought the images in Astra-Image software which aligned and combined them for a nice color shot of the Bubble nebula.  Came out pretty good for a Mono camera

Looking good, Mike! How did you find using filters with the Infinity? I'm not really familiar with Astra-Image, would you recommend it?

It worked really well with the Infinity Jo.  I like the mono camera because of the sensitivity is has, but I also like color.   Of course using the filters, you are not really doing live viewing, because you have to process the four images to combine and align them, but I like how well it worked

Glad to hear it works really well. I know what you mean about the live viewing, but it's nice to have the option there to use it in that way, I'll bear it in mind for the future!

Here is the Dumbbell nebula I took last night using the LRGB filters
