Full Moon - 16 September 2016

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Just sharing a image of the last full moon. This image consists of two single shots, top than bottom half, and combine in PS. 

Shot with a Canon 40D through the scope at native F10.

 

Thanks for looking

Mariusz

Very nice, you have got good contrast on this image. I also like the fact that the quality doesn't suffer too much once full size is selected. Which can happen. Well done

Though Colour does look a tad pink brown to my eyes. Not sure if you have used this, but colour auto balance on registax. will correct colour inside The button RGB balance on there. Looking at the numbers the reason it has come out red brown is not low altitude (although it could still have been low) but because green needed to go up, and blue even higher. Once that is done. A colour correction looks good here I think. see if you agree. I don't really like touching others images, hope you don't mind me showing what beautiful colours you have captured here.

First image is with registax RGB balance selected. Then auto correction done.

The second is the same image but with colour saturation applied. Hope you find this helpful. And useful

 Colour corrected saturation applied, some levels and mild sharpening

      The Sculptor Galaxy, also known as the Silver Coin or Silver Dollar Galaxy, NGC 253, an intermediate, starburst spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor, about 11.4 million LY away, undergoing a period of intense star formation.
      This photo was imaged in natural color through my 8" Celestron SCT at 2032mm focal length using my astro-modded and cooled canon 40D DSLR and tracked with a CGEM mount.
      I imaged this galaxy when the moon was nearly at first quarter and in the same general direction as the galaxy, so I used the Neodymium filter (AKA Moon and Skyglow filter) instead of the UV/IR Cut filter to try and control the moon glare, I think it worked.
      Total exposure time was 5 hours 41 minutes.
