  1. I used Photoshop CS2 to create these. I took 20 X 150sec frames of the comet. The trick i used to process, was to process one image while i recorded the steps to create an action in photoshop. once i had one shot to my liking, i ran a batch action on all the frames. this ensured they would all be processed the exact same. I then put each frame in its own layer, in the order that the animation would run, and used the animation tool to time it to my liking and create the gif. on a side note, i was in the middle of a DSO imaging session. I found myself waiting about an hour for my next object to rise high enough in the sky when i remembered this comet. So i looked up its coordinance, and got this data in 50 min. im glad i did. it was the first comet i have ever imaged thank you for the comment
  2. I love the pleiades. Great image.
  3. I guess i just need to give it a go and compare with and without. I do use some noise reduction techniques during my post process work flow. I am usuall happy with the noise reduction results. I also believe the QHY8L help with that. It seems to do well producing low noise. thank you very much for the comment.
  4. Thought i would post this just for fun. its a 50 min block of comet Jaques moving against the sky. It travels a total of 76,000 miles in the 50 minutes of capture. Hope you enjoy. Here are links to the animations, they are too large to post: http://www.astrobin.com/115950/ http://www.astrobin.com/115709/ Here is a still image of the comet on 8/23/2014

  6. I cant wait to image this under a dark sky and compare the two.
  7. Hello all, I am very new here and decided to post a few of my images and hope for some good feedback. I am a pretty lazy imager and like to spend most of my time doing post processing. I have never used a dark, bias, BPM, or a flat frame. I usually never gather more than 1 hour of data on an object. however, i feel my inner imaging mantra becoming schismed. I find myself researching dark frame creation, bias' and flat frame creation more and more. I feel i have come along way sinse my first tries at imaging last year and i am pretty happy with what i have been producing, but i feel myself wanting more quality. Here is an example of a one hour image (15 X 300sec) with no darks, bias, or flat frames. If you would, please let me know how my processing looks and what the benifit might be to spending more time aquiring data. I have experimented heavily from day one with how to process my images and come up with ways to make them look they way i like them. But i know that my way does not equal high quality. It might be time i start listening to others whose quality is much higher than mine and start learning from those who know. Should i spend time on darks flats etc? or not? would it help my images? I will post a few examples thanks for looking.
  8. great images! an HLVG add-on for PS would probably remove the green from the M31 nicely. http://www.deepskycolors.com/archive/2010/04/26/hasta-La-Vista-Green.html
  9. how about showing a thumbnail linked to a full size. Is this possible?
