    I finally had a clear night last night, so I decided to add the RGB data to my luminance data of the Leo Triplet.

    I think the seeing was pretty bad last night though as my FWHM was much higher than normal. So, the final image isn't as sharp as it could have been.

    I am happy with this image though. It is only my second LRGB image I've made with a mono camera.

    Lum: 96 Minutes
    Red: 75 Minutes
    Green: 75 Minutes
    Blue: 90 Minutes

    Stellarvue SV80 Access F7
    ZWO ASI183MM Pro
    EQ6-R Pro
    ZWO ASI 120MC-S Guide Camera
    60mm Guide Scope

    Its amazing that you can stack shots from different nights. You have a lot of time involved in this project. Very nice results.

    Excellent result! The color data really adds, especially to M66 - lots of great detail in that one! I think you got a very good result on your color balance too - colors looks very natural.

    Thanks everyone!

    It seems that we've been plagued by clouds here in Colorado for the past few months. I'd love to shoot more, but even this shot at 5.6 hours took close to 3 weeks to finish.

    I have a new scope coming in tomorrow, a Skywatcher MN190, but I won't be able to use it until next week with all the clouds.

    Here is a link the a larger res image, as well as all the data (click the photo)

    Incredible sight in the full resolution. I am with Ben on being amazed that you can overlay shots from different nights like this.
