M51 ultra wide field and cropped version

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Finally managed to get a clear night after over a month of bad weather and work. This is my first outing using the matched field flattener for my TMB so the widefield image has not been cropped. There was bad light pollution and plenty of sky glow where I lived so I have used Gradient Xterminator to try and get rid of the gradient that plagued most of the image. Only a slight levels adjustment was used, no curves. One iteration of local contrast enhancement using Noels tools was used as well. The image is made up of 60x2 minutes unguided. No filters were used as I am waiting delivery of adapters to connect my filter wheel into this set up.

Higher quality images are available on my website www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk

Thanks for looking

Kind regards and clear night to all
