Gathered more data and did a very simple processing. Very simple noise reduction.
I had a lot of problem capturing the Tulip Nebula because of some issues with probably my mount, my alignment, my guider or simple because of the weather. It was very windy in the past few days and couldn’t control. Anyway, I tossed half of my data worth around 5 hours of exposure.
Also I replaced my Orion OIII Filter and used an Astronomik OIII 12nm CCD Filter. It looked better than the Orion as it is causing same halo on my images.
Just testing my Mavic Pro Platinum footage while testing the PolarPro NB8/PL Filter. There’s some erratic behavior in the gimbal that sometimes it’s jumping and at the near of the end of the footage, you’ll see me testing the gimbal by manually maneuvering the drone.
Yes I upgraded my desktop that I primarily use for processing my astrophotos and did a little bit of PixInsight benchmark and here are the results.
While doing a lot of performance optimization to my rig, I noticed some slow performance and wasn’t really happy with it so I decided to do a clean install once again. We’ll this time the rig is more stable and the recent results for the PixInsight benchmark proved my findings. With a gain of 3,713 points of the total performance score with a little bit of a tweak and installing the system on the M2 drive proved it’s worth effort.
