M45 The Pleiades
« on: October 29, 2019, 11:47:57 AM »
Sharing an image taken over the weekend from the patio. I'm very pleased with how it came out! Added a little blue filter effect during post-processing to make it more interesting.
Thanks!

Hi David..thanks!

No, not yet. This was my first image taken with the new Horizon without using an Ha filter so I'll probably dedicate some more sessions with just the UV/IR block filter. I do have a manual filter wheel on standby though! The sensitivity of the mono vs OSC is amazing.
