NGC 663 (C12)

Open Cluster, Cassiopeia
Mag 7.1 Size 916′
2014-10-01
200mm f8 RC, piggyback guiding C80ED
L 8×120 2×2, RGB 5×120 3×3
Atik 460EX (-10C), LRGB filters, Lumicon DS filter
Captured in APT, Processed in Nebulosity, PS CC

First chance to try out the new 460EX properly.

A “mucky” night with low transparency. Lots of star bloat but the camera has almost no noise at -10C. Processing still needs some work. Too many very red stars. Could be caused by the DS filter?
