A slightly more careful processing of the earlier data.  At least 4 asteroids in there and North is to the right 🙂

I found a couple more frames lurking in the archive, as well as realising that I’d lost a few with M89, M90, M91 🙁  I will have to retake those again.  This massive field of view is precisely what I built the mini-WASP array for and hopefully I will eventually get round to imaging this galaxy field, in anger, with an instrument actually made for the job.  The way things are going I doubt whether I will be ready in time for this spring, but I will give it a good try 🙂

Managed to process the full width of this image which I didn’t think I’d manage to do when I started on this one earlier today.

Managed to squeeze out a bigger crop which brought in the top of M42 at the bottom of the image.

I used Registar to add together all the data I had on the Running Man nebula in Orion.  This amounted to well over 80 hours of total exposure time including some recent 5 x 1,000 second subs from the Hyperstar III.  The reason for the 8-spiked stars is that the spikes were orientated differently in different datasets (I’ve no idea why).

North is to the right in this Sky 90/M25C image comprising 33-subs at 590 seconds per sub.  I went very deep with the Sky 90 for this one under almost perfect sky conditions.  To the left of the image the red nebulosity is the top of the Heart nebula, IC1831 is the central region of the image.  As you can see there are plenty of stars as we are in the Milky Way here 🙂

Carried out some final (?) processing twiddles on the Rosette composite – think it’s just about there now 🙂

Handled the old data slightly differently in this Registar composite reprocess.

Registar was used to align old Rosette and Monkey Head nebula data with that taken recently to form a composite image with even more data 🙂  Here are the results.

Here is a wide-field composite image of M78 and its relation to Barnard’s Loop taken using both Sky90 and Hyperstar I data.
