I can't quite believe this but, having checked, the last image I posted was in 2014!! Anyway, I spent most of 2017 building my observatory (thread here) having moved house, so finally I have been able to start using it. This is also my first LRGB image, so combining that inexperience with at least 3 years of cobwebs made this a bit of a struggle to process. I haven't done anything special - just curves and a star mask in Photoshop. Any C&C welcome. No tidal streams here - I thought about trying to go a bit deeper, but decided to hold back on the ambition since it's been a while Maybe I'll return to it later in the season once the moon has gone away. It could also do with some more RGB data. M63 L: 27x600s RGB: 3x600s each Atik 460ex MN190 Thanks for looking!
Here's my first image after a year and a half absence, I've always loved the Sunflower galaxy in wide field but this image would certainly benefit from a lot of extra subs and practice in precessing. I've had nothing but issues with eqdirect and recently got a new Lynx astro cable to replace Hitec astro one and suddenly my problems were solved. Any advice and tips for smoothing out the background would be appreciated, Thanks for looking Campbell Scope 130PDS on HEQ5, guided in PHD2, stacked in Nebulosity, levels in PS6 lights: 20 x 300s @ 800 iso Flats: 20 x Bias: 20 x Darks: 20 x 300s
