NGC6820 and NGC6823

Recommended Posts

This photo needs more work. I don't think I processed it properly and I have no clue of how to do it to make it nicer, smoother. The Ha is taking over when combining into SHO making the photo very green and I find it very hard to balance the colours. I initially had 19x600sec Oiii but I couldn't do much with that and I added another 12x600sec.

I added the Ha as luminance to clean it a bit but it still doesnt look right.

I added a screenshot of some calibrated singles Ha, Sii and Oiii photos. 

The stars seem to be much fatter in the Sii photos. received_783666918754607.thumb.jpeg.73167d0382f573cd677827130bae80ff.jpeg

Would adding more data help? But what to add, Ha, Sii or Oiii? 

I have 30x600sec Ha, 29x600sec Sii and 31x600sec Oiii

I think that is a very nice image. Wish I could produce one of that quality.

Great image Emil, with the Hubble pallet it always comes out very green until you merge the colours to your own taste.. 

Looks great from here

I gathered some more data and reprocessed it.

This is what I came up with.

now, 40x600sec Ha, 32x600sec Oiii and 32x600sec Sii.

Looks to me like you came up with something very nice indeed.

I like very much the rich variety and yet understated colours. I cannot believe that space is psychedelic or garish when it comes to colours.

Thank you for sharing.
