Recommended Posts

Hello 

This is my version of M101 and some friends.  The data has being collected over past 3 months and is heavily cropped

Telescope - 102mm APO ES refractor on a AVX mount

Camera- Canon 70d unmoded iso800 with a IDAS-D2 filter.  

Duration 12 hours - 300s lights., Darks, flats and bias frames also taken

Guided with PHD2 and processed in PS

Cheers thanks for looking. Of course any improvements welcome

Dean

There is so much detail in there!  That's a great job.  Have you tried using the Canon Raw Filter in PS, and then the colour noise slider - if you move it up to 20-25 it should remove some of the colour noise in the background!

Hi Dean

I hope you dont mind, I gave it run through PS this morning:

1) Colour noise reduction

2) Colour noise reduction and Gradient Xterminator to balance background colour
