Moving To Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

I have recently made the move from a copy of photoshop CS2 to Affinity Photo. I am glad that I did, it has given me the push to try and get to grips with mono imaging in narrowband. Here are a couple of recent images taken with my Atik One 6.0 with baader 7nm HA & OIII filters, through my Equinox 80 pro scope anf Televe TRF2008 0.8x reducer flattener. These are my first go at HOO, and I struggled a bit with how to combine channels in Affinity, it's not as straight forward as pasing the mono images into each channel like photoshop, but once I got the hang of the new workflow and the differences with masks, I think I prefer it.

......and its been extensively reviewed this year in 'Astronomy now' magazine by Nik Szymanek.

I've missed reading some of it, so hopefully they will do some sort of complete publication covering it all.

Anyway, if its good enough for Nik.....
