Orion StarBlast (imaging version) fitted with a Meade DSI Pro and a SkyGlow filter mounted side-by-side with a second StarBlast (original version) fitted with a Meade DSI on an LXD75.
While imaging M11 and M26 I came across this beautiful globular that’s almost lost in the foreground Milky Way. This image of NGC6712 was taken with a DSI Pro (L:50x30sec) at the prime focus of an Orion StarBlast (imaging version) fitted with an Orion SkyGlow filter and a DSI (RGB:22x60sec) at the prime focus of second StarBlast (original version) mounted side-by-side on a Meade LXD75. The source images were saved as FITS3P combined offline in drizzle. Drizzle was also used to convert the FITS3P from the DSI to a BMP. The LRGB was then assembled in Photoshop
