The Andromeda Galaxy 2012 by Starhopper
I combined 3 hours 45 m from a DSLR image with 2 hours CCD here. 5m subs for DSLR..10m for CCD. While both images were ok imo they got a lot better fast combined. Fun one.

Was is difficult stacking data from the CMOS sensor and the CCD sensor? Did you stack each sensor's data separately, then combine the two?

I did stack both seperate. Then added the new CCD data to an older DSLR image. It was difficult because the DSLR shot had no Field flattener.

I combined the two in Photoshop using layers and manually rotated and resized the Canon image...set layer style to screen. On the DSLR shot I also used Offset in the corners to try and match the stars up in those areas. Im sure there was an easier way...the 2 hour image was lacking time. It seemed like a nice challenge. Works!
