The Trifid, Lagoon, dimmer but lovely IC 4685, are a highlight of southern summer skies. This image is from from the Texas Star Party in Fort Davis this spring. I've rerendered this data as a drizzle stack with StarNet2 from the Texas Star Party in Fort Davis.
Imaged starting 2022-04-30 08:31 UT. I stacked and processed 15 five minute expsoures taken with a William Optics RedCat 250/51mm telescope, Baader UV/IR cut filter, ZWO ASI 533 MC camera, and SkyWatcher AZ-EQ5 mount, ASI EAF and guide camera. All were controlled with a ZWO ASIAir Plus Controller. Processed in PixInsight, StarNet2, Topaz DeNoise AI, and Photoshop.
