Finally, I think I got the data blended for this image as best as possible with the least amount of artifacts. Two images from a 6 inch Schmidt-Newt were combined with one of my more recent C-8 images of the galaxy. I used Registar to scale and align each of the 3 images and then blended them in PS manually.
Here’s a rework of an image with data from higher resolution images overlayed on a base image that was taken with my 200mm F/2.8 Canon telephoto lens. The overlay images were closeups of M8 and M20 taken with the TV-85 telescope.
Here’s a reprocess of data taken on Nov 28, 2014. This was 24×60 sec and 27×300 sec @ ISO 1600 taken with a C8 at F/6.3, an IDAS-LPS filter and a Canon T3 (modified.)
