  1. Version 2, this time I have used Starnet++ to process the nebula independently to the stars. Again the processing has been done in Affinity Photo.
  2. I’ve had a quick play with this in Affinity Photo. I will give it a proper go later.
  3. When you launch it, you should get a dialogue box saying there is a newer version available.
  4. Updated I like that we can now enter x & y values for more accurate curves. Maybe someone will create arcsinh curve presets
  5. Mark Now that version 1.9 of Affinity Photo has been released it is possible to place points on a curve as x & y values between 0 & 1. Would it be possible to create arcsinh preset curves in Affinity Photo? Regards Darren
  6. What a stunning image
  7. There is no need to keep PS2 if it is just for combining the mono images into a colour image, if you watch my video you will see how easy it is.
  8. To make the process a little clearer I have recorded a quick video showing how I combine mono images to create a colour image using Affinity Photo. https://youtu.be/MBZ5W5YKVg4 The images in this video are just single 5 minute subs taken with Red, Green & Blue filters, that have been aligned using Astro Pixel Processor and saved as Tiff files. I hope it helps.
  9. The method I use is to paste each of my mono images into a new document as a layer, then use the colour channel adjustment layer on each of the new layers to colour them as either red, green or blue. I have set up presets for each colour to make it quick and easy. Then you just set the blend mode to add for each of the layers. This produces a colour image, if you then create a stamp layer that combines all the visible layers (ctrl, alt, shift & E) this creates a colour layer that you can further process. A good video to watch about colour is this explains splitting a colour
  10. I had another go at processing the Horsehead from the same dodgy data. Is it an improvement? Darren
  11. Due to the bad weather and having no new data to play with, I have dug out some of my early astro imaging efforts. I wasn't expecting much as the source data is really bad. The RGB data was taken with an stick Canon EOS 1000d through my C8 with a 0.63 FR. Now the focal reducer I used at the time was one of the dodgy Chinese knock offs that means that the back focus was all wrong creating misshaped stars towards the edges and really bad vignetting, most of which has been cropped out because of the size of my Ha data. The Ha data was my first every attempt at Ha when I first got my At
  12. This was from my last imaging session of 2020, The Monkey Head Nebula taken on Christmas Eve.
  13. 20x5min of Ha OIII & SII USING AN Atikone 6.0 through an Equinox 80 pro with a televiewers TRF2008 0.8x focal reducer. In Astro Pixel Processor I applied a 3x factor to both OIII & SII when combining the channels. I then used selective colour adjustments to balance the colours
