    M81 LRGB

    Thanks Steve. So do i normally, in fact I have not done much LRGB over the last few years but the position of Mr B and the scope on the mount limited targets the other day. I do like a go at galaxy imaging and its actually a plan to do more in the near future

    M81 LRGB

    I think its a lot to do with the moon. I calibrate and stack in APP. Over to PS for a series of stretches in curves and lowering the black point in levels to taste. Grad ex to try and kill the gradients on this image a touch of decon using Astra image then noise reduction bit more sharpeing using layers, overlay , high pass -hide and then rubbed out to tweak the galaxy only up the viberance a tad and a dose of saturation increase back to levels to tame the background save as png I have given this version a couple of saturation increases what do you reckon now?

    Registar users - was it worth it?

    Well over a year ago (early adopter of APP) it would not align the Ha and O3 of my 4 pane mosaic NB filters of the veil which has been fixed now and did a great job in the end. I also had a issue with the rgb not aligning in a recent image but Registar sorted it (I think it was M78 ) that could have been user error though. On the other hand if I remember correctly I was doing a multi pane mosaic of NGC1499 and Registar would not play and APP did it no problem and that is what convinced my to buy it at the time. And I do now use APP for my calibration and stacking of DSO objects.

    Registar users - was it worth it?

    Yes it was at the time and I do still use it on the odd occasion . For me it has recovered data I could not align anywhere else using Maxim and recently APP. (though APP has only failed on that one image TBH) i am not a Pixinsight user.

    ak 102 QSI cam 40 x L 20 x rgb 300 secs Not too bad with Mr B arround. Do the clicky thing for full res (and the naughty bunnies)

    Mineral Moon help needed 🙂

    As above if you have PS do it as a new adjustment layer increase saturation by 10% each time, but watch the hightlights for over exposing. well thats what I found. There is a method on Ice In Space, I will see if I can find a link. found it http://www.iceinspace.com.au/63-656-0-0-1-0.html

    More Luna 14-2-2019

    Thanks Dave. As you know I don't do the moon. Have a look in downloads -thats where my Win 10 likes to save stuff. Thanks Jim. I had to tone the saturation back down as some of the craters where blue.

    Yes the seeing was better here as well. It was just the numpty pressing the wrong buttons and tuning it all wrong. I might need some kip.
