Don't know how I missed this thread before!   That is absolutely wonderful Sara.  That's my target for when we get the weather.  But I don't think I'm likely to get anywhere near the beauty of your image!

What colour pallet did you use on that?

EDIT -  Oops you said - SHO. Just reread the thread...

Thanks Gina - Regarding the colour palette, I just didn't take the green out like normal using the Bob Franke method.

I see no reason to cut the green out.  It's false colour after all.  Why chuck data away?!

I like Pixel Math in PI.

I most certainly don't and can't work it for a moment!!!! There's not much in PI that I do like to be honest.

But you can use images instead apparently.  I seem to remember removing stars in PI that would have used layers in Photoshop.  The machine that had PS on died and I lost it.  GIMP does layers though.

I don't have a long enough life to try to even begin to use PI 🤣

Haha, glad it's not just me that can't get their head around PI. My desk has a big dent in it from banging my head in despair LOL.

ATM, I'm reasonably happy with AstroArt 7 and Gimp 2.10.14, just trying to raise my standards. If I can come anywhere near the standard of Sara's NB Horsehead, I'll be delighted.

I did have PI working for me a couple of years ago it seems from my posts but feels like I'm starting again!  I used some excellent tutorials then - must find them again.  I do have the book though.

Thank you - I may need it!!  One benefit of PI is that all the image processing can be done in one package.  As I recall, PS only did the post-processing whist other software was needed for stacking and aligning etc.
