IC5146 Reworked

Recommended Posts

Never really happy with my first image,and could,nt leave it alone.

This is my latest effort with the same data.

I,ve tried to tighten up the stars and bring out more of the blue in the Nebulae.

Maybe i have pushed too far.

Mick.

Hi Mick. Yes looks a bit over cooked. I think it's black clipped and the blue looks odd. Almost like you felt it should be there and forced it out. What was the integration time?

Yes i totally agree,it seemed to look ok when i re-worked it,but soon realised i,d hashed it.

I would have deleted it,but it still leaves the the message.

I would,nt have responded to it either.(LOL)

Hey mick, it looks like the data is fine but you went a little too far with the saturation and you got too much blue or rather magenta in the image. What do you use for processing?

Hi John.

I just use AstroArt to capture.

Registar to register.

I use only Photo-shop CS2 for processing.

Cheers.

Mick.
