People often ask me what goes into making my Astrophotography images. It is much more involved than just capturing a single image!
I made this short video showing the evolution of a narrowband image taken with a monochrome camera. The video shows the progression from a single image, to a stacked and processed image for each filter and then a couple of color combinations in their final state. I used Pixinsight to do all of the stacking and processing of the images.
The images in the shot were taken with my Samyang 135mm lens, ASI294MM camera, Optolong filters, Skywatcher EQ6R-Pro mount and ASIAIR Pro from my Backyard in Stillwater Lake, NS in January of 2022.
