Date: Data processed October 18, 2013. Data aquisition: August
September 19, 2013
Time: 64 x30 min (
32 hours) for each of Ha, SII, OIII, and 34 x 30 min (17 hours) of
L, R, G, B for a total of 164 hours of imaging time.
Processing: CCD Stack and PhotoShop CS/4
Image Infornmation: IC 1396 is an emission nebula in Cepheus.
Processing Infornmation This Composite Narrow Band and LRGB image was obtained using AstroDon NB and LRGB filters. The
NB and LRGB images were assembled in CCDStack. The NB and LRGB images were then compined in Photoshop. Further
stretching, high pass filtering and background smoothing was performed with Adobe Photoshop CS/4. All data stretching
was by minimal stretching with gamma and DDP in CCD Stack and then further stretching with curves/levels in photoshop.
