This is image of M46 and NGC2438 was taken with a Meade DSI at the prime focus of an Orion StarBlast on and LXD75. The luminance data (50x15sec) was taken using the color sharp model while the color data (25x15sec) was taken using the color soft model. All of the source images were saved as FITS3P, aligned and combined in drizzle. Drizzle was also used to save the color data as a BMP. The luminance and color data were combined in Photoshop.
