17th Aug H-Alpha (Contrast Blended Proms!)


Recommended Posts

OK, don't get TOO excited but... :D

The "challenge" of imaging the extreme brigtness variations of the recent
detached prominence rather struck me. Basically I wondered if I could use
so-called "contrast blending" on the prominence layer. The answer: YES :)
(I cheat using a pre-written Script within GIMP to blend THREE layers!)

Whether it is of real use for small-scale images of prominences is perhaps
doubtful <grin> But worth investigating for (your) larger scale images! ;)  

My typical prominence image (burnt out roots & missing extremities):


GIMP assisted Blended Contrast... showing the "full" Prominence:


Combined Image (Will remember to orientate image correctly one day!) :D
