Lee and Jammey,
I am enjoying your discussion even though I don’t understand a lot of it. It has been a learning experience.   Duane

I think the star labled I:8740 (24x24) is the star I had labeled HD25152.

The HFR: 2.24  What are the units?
What is the (24x24) all about?  Is it number of pixels perhaps?

The framing and mosaic wizard in SGP can do a single panel, or multiple panels. In this case, it was a single panel used in conjunction with a 36x24mm sensor to frame up the target. In other words, this is a full frame FOV through Duane's NP101 captured across his 36X24mm ASI2400MC-Cool sensor.

I am compelled to ask how many images composed the mosaic. How much bigger than the field of view of a single image is the final image?

Using Cartes du Ciel, I have measured the distance between  and HD25125 as 1 degree 17 minuets.  See below.
Looking at your photo with my fingers as dividers to measure distance I am guessing the size of the image is about 2.25 x 3.25 degrees.
Am I anywhere near correct?

Can you report a spot size (FWHA) for some stars? For example the star HD25152 which I labeled in image below?

Again, Very very nice.

Hi Forrest,

I've attached another edit incorporating the HA data. I no longer am on Facebook but feel free to take this info and post.  The image was acquired using the following:

Equipment:
Mount: Astro Physics Mach1 Goto
Scope: Tele Vue NP101
Guide Scope: Svbony 30mm F4
Camera: ASI2400MC-Cool
Filter : Optolongs Dual Band 3nm HA & OIII filter

Acquisition details
Polar Alignment was accomplished using the QHY Polemaster. Focus was achieved utilizing a Feather touch focus motor within Sharpcap.

The session was created in Sequence Generator Pro using the framing and mosaic wizard with plate solving configured in Sequence Generator Pro. The sequence details were set in Sequence Generator Pro at 42 -  10 minute subs and ran from approx 8PM - 4:30AM on 12/1/22.. Auto meridian flip was set in Sequence Generator Pro.

Gain: Unity @ 0 degrees
Subs: 42 subs @ 10 minutes ea
Darks: 10
Flats: 40

Processing
• The lights, darks, and flats were loaded into Deep Sky Stacker to create the stack
• The stack was processed in Pixilnsight: Linerfit, Dynamic Background Extraction, and then stretched
• The stretched file was opened in Photoshop and edited to taste.
• The HA edit and OIII edits were then combined in Photoshop and then saved

To All, attached is a photo taken by SMAS member, Jammey Church, using my telescope, mount and camera. The picture is composed of 7 1/2 hours of 10 minute subs and processed with PixInsight. I helped with the final processing. Jammey is helping me consolidate wiring and updating my components.   Duane Dunlap

Lee, the two versions of the California Nebula were processed from the same subs.The “white-ish” version was processed by me primarily with OIII data. The other version with more red was done by Jammey Church using OIII data plus HA data. Same data, same picture….just processed differently. Also, these are wide-field, single frame pictures….not mosaics. I like both versions. Thanks for your interest.   Duane Dunlap
