Bubble

Having been inspired by Uranium 235’s superb wide view version of the bubble, and having explored Photoshop a bit more, I had another go at this HaRGB image, taken at 850mm.  18 x 20mins ha, 16 x 5mins each RGB. Certainly an improvement over the original, but now I really do need criticsm……

That is a cracking image, if only I could get anywhere near that kind of quality.

The colour balance is spot on, just a feeling that stars and nebulosity could be a bit sharper? and by the way I am truely no expert!!.

Thanks very much, Tim.  That is exactly the sort of comment I needed.  It is possible to become too "close" to an image after many hours of processing.  I always suppose that subconsciously I assume that if the image is in focus, then the stars which are not overly bright should correct.  Anyway, I have done a bit of sharpening of the stars which I agree with you, has given a subtle improvement to the image.  The nebula I have left pretty much alone in case it interfered with the bubble itself.  

Better version where you might actually be able to see the changes here: http://astrob.in/full/153476/0/

Chris, I wish I could capture that kind detail to get to close too, :smiley:

 That has made quite a difference to my ageing eyes, the stars no longer have that 'misty' look to them. Stunning image, I'm green with envy :Envy:.
