Veil Complex a reprocess APP/PI

Recommended Posts

Now I have APP working (for me) I've redone this 4 panel mosaic. Each panel comprises 6x 300s subs and these were initially processed in APP with no calibration frames and none of the tools options in APP used. This fairly raw mosaic was then opened in PI, croped to removed the stacking, frame alignment errors and rotated/fliped to give a fairly correct orientation.

Next, I hit the image with SCNR to remove any green, then a luminance mask was applied and repeatedly worked flicking between background and subject applying colour and density corrections with saturation and colour transformation tools before saving full size and smaller versions in tiff, png and jpg formats.

To me APP has produced a better integration of the 4 panels than my earlier attempt with processing the 4 separate panels in PI and then combining in PS CS3.

I dont have any experience with either APP or PI but thats a nice image,and that star field must have been a nightmare to deal with.

Lovely wide field.
