Subject: [ccd-newastro] PacMan from trip to New Mexico
Here is my image of the PacMan nebula taken during my recent trip to New
I have revised my HaRGB combine technique in order to maintain more accurate
star colors. Details and a High Res version are below each image.

- Thank you to both Stan and Bernard for your feedback.
Stan - could you explain your comment a little more to me? Are you speaking to the image scale or just the fact the images don't display properly?
My system is producing an imaging scale of 2.69 arcsec/pix, which is works well for me in my light polluted back yard. I could probably have removed the FR for this object in addition to the support of great NM sky conditions.
I didn't realize Zenfolio wasn't producing the largest image size. I had to uncheck a setting restriction to do so. I now have a larger image to view here: http://astromarina.zenfolio.com/img/s8/v75/p1410219766.jpg
I look forward to your additional comments.

A black background is often employed to bury poor flatting or other problems, so unless you have such problems then try showing the dim data.
