RGBHOO process approx 3 hours of data, captured from my backyard in Manchester UK under Bortle 8-9 skies using my Altair Astro 72EDF refractor with x0.8 reducer, and a Altair Astro IMX183 Colour PROTEC (CMOS) Hypercam.
90 mins of RGB using L-Pro-MAX filter and then switched over to using the TRIBAND filter and captured a further 90mins of data.
Ha and OIII mono data extracted from RGB Triband data with Astro Pixel Processor, reintegrated and recombined with the LPro RGB data to generate an RGBHOO integration. Processed with Pixinsight and Photoshop 2020.
