  1. Thanks Craig, matter of taste i guess! hmmm now you say ... yes, it seems like it's harder to see that faint nebulosity hmmm
  2. thanks Brian, i will explain, in my case i'm a traveller so i have to go far in search of a dark sky , that means I ususally can only go out once a month , so, I need to take what i think is the best for only one night. The point is: I use the Halpha as luminance so I need it to be in the best shape i can, Halpha has a lot more signal than o3 and s2 so 300seconds is enough for most DSOs , since o3 and s2 are very faint, in my experience 600 seconds get better result than 300 even with few subs. o3 and s2 puts color in the halpha only. And that's it, if you don¡t understand something please let me know and I will try to explain it, I hope my english is understable at least greetings!
  3. that's how I get rid of any magenta stars and background cast that could remain! I erase the stars for tonemapping also because of the different size of them can show weird results sometimes, even just having stars from Halpha usually some magenta stars remains, thank you !
  4. Hello, in NB imaging is very common to see magenta stars, those just hurts my eyes, I erase any star prior merging the channels that's how my stars are natural looking, my stars are from the Halpha only, they are white yes and sometimes a little blueish but I prefer that one miliion times than magenta stars, in my opinion. Even doing this procedure usually remains some magenta stars but I get rid of them
  5. I love NB imaging! some people don't like the imaginary colors but I just love'em!
  6. Hola! yeah I tried that (https://flic.kr/p/2hcZTf6) but atm I prefer the softer result , it depends on my mood! thanks!

  8. Thank you very much! Greatly appreciated!
  9. Hello, I could go out last weekend and took some subs more to add and improve the former version of the pelican nebula I made one month ago https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/338449-ic5070-sho/ hope you like this version! added 20 subs of 600s of O3 and 20 subs of 300s S2 3 x 300s Ha for fixing the stars shape
  10. Hi! here I bring the pelican nebula in Sho palette , hope you guys like it! 23x300s Ha 3x600 O3 6x300s S2 SW NEQ6 PRO II TS-Optics 130/650mm Imaging Star APO QHY16200A 7 x 50mm astronomik filters 6nm Zwo 290mm mini (OAG) MSI laptop Sequence generator pro PixInsight Preprocessing: I stack the images manually , using cosmetic correction DynamicCrop each image DBE each image Duplicated the master Ha to use as the luminance Deconvolution MMT noise reduction HistogramTransformation bring to no -linear LocalHistogramEqualization prepared every channel reducing noise and removing the star using starnet++ combined with channel combination curves transformation for the color adjustments LRGB combination further processing in Photoshop
  11. what do you mean? if i can shrink the distance instead of extend it? if so , no I can't , the only way could be sawing it up!
