Not too bad with Mr B arround.

Do the clicky thing for full res (and the naughty bunnies)

That's got promise Steve but there isn't much colour saturation on show (and I don't like too much!).

What processing workflow did you follow?

Great capture Steve. Unfortunately Mr B has washed out some of the colour, especially the blue channel. But, imaging is imaging and I tend to use Ha during the moon phases.

I think its a lot to do with the moon.

 

I calibrate and stack in APP.

Over to PS for a series of stretches in curves and lowering the black point in levels to taste.

Grad ex to try and kill the gradients

on this image a touch of decon using Astra image then noise reduction

bit more sharpeing using layers, overlay , high pass -hide and then rubbed out to tweak the galaxy only

up the viberance a tad and a dose of saturation increase

back to levels to tame the background save as png

 

I have given this version a couple of saturation increases

what do you reckon now?

Thanks Steve.

 

So do i normally, in fact I have not done much LRGB over the last few years but the position of Mr B and the scope on the mount limited targets the other day.

 

I do like a go at galaxy imaging and its actually a plan to do more in the near future
