Further processing of my M33 image from 27/10/2020, using MaskedStretch in PixInsight, colour saturation enhancement and noise reduction in Photoshop.
Taken on with the Williams Optics 81. 3 hours of 7min subs frames.
I’ve decided to start processing some of my images again as i have a poor tendency to dwell on things for a while testing and testing. So here is the first one in hubble palette.
20x5min HA 36x5min Oiii 7x5min Sii
Hope you like it 🙂
The 130pds strikes again!
This is from 28/10, imaged under a 94% moon. I did this one a year ago and accidently cut off the bottom, so it’s always been on the list to go back and have another go. This is a HOO blend using the ASI1600MM Pro, with 80x60sec at gain 250 on both channels.
Here is my attempt at NGC 7635. This image was composed of 40 x 15 minute frames stacked in Deep Sky stacker and processed in Pixinsight and photoshop. I wanted to add more data but the weather just hasn’t been great lately ☁️☁️.
These are my photos of parts of NGC 7000 this week – the main problem I have is that my mono camera simply does not have the field of view to catch the whole nebula.
Both attempts at Hubble Palette – first image shows bottom of nebula & Cygnus Wall, and the second was attempt to get part of nebula further up – located around the star HD 199870. In the second image, I kept more of the green colour when using SCNR in PixInsight (first image 100% removal, second 50% green removal).
This is my first image stacked using PixInsight rather than DSS/Nebulosity – then DBE and LRGB combination (although this version only uses RGB as I hadn’t finished stacking luminence data at point on processing!). I then used Photoshop for curves, levels, a layer mask to bring out the galaxy a bit more, saturation, contrast, Gradient eXterminator and Astroflat Pro plug-ins and and a little bit of Hasta La Vista Green plug-in. The image below has now yet had noise removal or any further sharpening.
My second ever photo in narrowband – HA-OIII-SII.
On this occasion, I decided to photograph the Pelican Nebula……I used plate solving to get into the nebula but did not realise that this meant I was right in the middle of it and hence my image below (which is based around the star HD198896) does not show much of the well known edge of the nebula – still, it is a riot of colour!
SII – Red
Ha – Green
OIII – Blue
