M31 - LHaRGB Attempt


Recommended Posts

I've spent so long on the processing of this one I have probably overdone it. Time to stop now.

Only about 3hrs 20 total integration in L, Ha, and RGB.

Bortle 5 skies near Malaga, Spain. Skywatcher Evostar ED80 on HEQ5 - ZWO ASI1600MM.

Fully processed in PixInsight and using some of the EZ Processing Suite tools. 

Suggestions for improvement welcome. Unless it's to say I need more data (I know that). 😉

Hi Daemon

Plenty of detail and nicely framed.  It looks a tad green to my eye with some gradient - hope you dont mind I had a play with it - I selected just the galaxies with lasso tool and inverted the selection and ran GradXTerminator on the image.  Then I ran HLVG on the image, and brought in the histogram a tad at the black end leaving a background of 23-30.

All the best

🙂 Thanks Adam! Yeah, I noticed the green when it was too late. Doesn't help being partially colour blind. 🙂

And thanks for the processing hints. Noted. 👍
