The power of drizzling in Deep Sky Stacker! Wizard Nebula in greyscale, stacked in AS3! Drizzled x3

The following image is a further process of my Wizard Nebula image from start of this week, this time stacked in Deep Sky Stacker with drizzling x3 selected on the stacking parameters, and then cropped into the nebula.

Once stacked, processed in Photoshop with a little help from Nol’s actions.

  1. Interesting and effective! I was aware that you could use AS!3 for deep sky shots but have never tried it.

    This might be a viable option for tiny galaxies but I also have plenty of subs.

    How many subs did you use?

  2. Looks good. I c an just about make out the star shape that I assume is meant to be the end of the wizard’s magic wand. There’s also a hint of the cone shape that would be his hat!
    I looked it up and see that it was discovered by a lady –
    NGC 7380 (also known as the Wizard Nebula) is an open cluster discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1787. William Herschel included his sister’s discovery in his catalog, and labelled it H VIII.77. It is also known as 142 in the 1959 Sharpless catalog (Sh2-142). This reasonably large nebula is located in Cepheus. It is extremely difficult to observe visually, usually requiring very dark skies and an O-III filter.
