  1. Good set of proms there.
  2. Fantastic detail in both frames!
  3. Superb close up, that is a beauty.
  4. I have been using the auto RGB align in registax 6 for ages, but it did seem to make this data look washed out.
  5. Its been a quite period imaging wise of late. I have some very tall conifers not far from me that have been blocking access to Jupiter and Saturn until they have transited the meridian. So i only get to view/image them on the way down. Definitely having a go at Uranus again soon though, Mars should be excellent next year as well, sandstorms permitting
  6. Another go at this SER file today. I stacked again AS3, rather than doing the RGB align in Registax 6. I used the individual RGB sliders to increase the values on the histogram, while ensuring i didn't clip any of them (hopefully). Then i followed the same process in Astraimage as before for sharpening/denoise. The result is certainly brighter, maybe a little to bright in the center and has a little more color again?
  7. Had another go to try and increase the color. I think i have teased a bit more from it, without doing to much damage. What do you think @CraigT82
  8. It does look a bit washed out, probably due to my clumsy processing probably lost some colour during the sharpening/denoise, thank you for your observation, always good to have another sets of eyes!
  9. It has been a long wait this year to get the time, or weather to image Saturn this year. An opportunity presented itself on the 19th and the seeing seemed pretty decent as well Saturn obviously very low at around 14 degrees. some pretty good detail visible though. C9.25, Asi224mc, ADC, X1.8 Barlow. Stacked around 10% of 30,000 frames. Astra image software for processing, impressed by the Lucy Richardson deconvolution and particularly the denoise function.
  10. Lovely widefield view, I never think about doing types of captures
  11. Very quite, but perfectly formed!
  12. Nice, like the inverted as well
  13. That is a good size prom, very well captured
  14. Excellent capture, good to see the moons in the frame.
