Walking on the Moon

Quick and dirty M51 with Siril and Affinity Photo


Recommended Posts


Been a long time since i posted any images, been on a break from astro and having some gear trouble.

I collected a fair amount of data in the spring, but I haven't really processed it for various reasons.

A constant problem has been heavy vignetting with my small 1,25" filters and my Altair Astro 115M camera, causing all kinds of calibration problems and processing woes.

I have finally bit the bullet and ordered some 36mm filters and a new filter wheel, can't wait to use it in anger.


Even though I have PixInsight I decided to have a play around with Siril and Affinity Photo, and I found that I really enjoyed working with those software packages, something I cannot say about PI..

So without further ado.. Quick and dirty first process with Siril and Affinity Photo.


GSO 6"RC at 992mm

Altair Astro 115M

Baader 1,25" LRGB filters


NINA for acquisition


About 2 hrs of L and 40 minutes of each i RGB.
