Poor seeing kept me from really getting up close and personal so I mostly shot at prime focus. I really like the flexibility of the ZWO to change the sensor region of interest, which allows different frame rates. I shot this at 800x800 and 59 fps and captured 1500 frames. This is the best 65% (975 frames) aligned and stacked in AutoStakkert! 2.1.0.5, then wavelets, noise reduction, sharpening, curves adjustments and local histogram equation in PixInsight 1.8. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/april-2014-solar-system/p12515-mare-serenitatis-and-crater-luther.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/april-2014-solar-system/p12515-mare-serenitatis-and-crater-luther.html Sat, 19 Apr 2014 16:55:47 -0400 IC 443 narrowband <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/space-is-the-place/p12514-ic-443-narrowband.html"><img title="IC443_large_colored_narrowband.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/990/thumbs/IC443_large_colored_narrowband.jpg" alt="IC443_large_colored_narrowband.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Klaatu2u<br /><br />Description}: Here it is in tri color.

Days later, the shockwaves caused geomagnetic storms near Earth and induced bright displays of the aurora borealis. This image captures a bright aurora rays and arcs. The green aurora originate from complex interactions between the solar wind and the constituents of Earth’s atmosphere nearly 70 miles up, while similar processes cause the red aurora between 125 and 250 miles in altitude.
