Les Tilly

Horsehead HARGB

Recommended Posts

Well I put some of my new tecniques into my Horsehead image from a few months ago, this is HA and RGB combined then I reduced the stars and enhanced the contrast, then applied a layer with all the stars and adjusted the Opacity to my taste then Falttend the image

Thanks for looking Les

Well that process is a sure fire winner for me.

The Image is absolutely magnificent Les. Top drawer and no mistake.

Thats one beautiful image Les, the striations above the Horsehead and the detail in the outer lying areas is stunning. A text book image indeed ;)

Thanks Guys, I forgot all about this image I kind of dug it back out to try more stuff on it I know I did Noels Diffraction spikes at one point I had a lot of trouble with the flame area been too red I guess thats with the HA Filter then I left it alone for a month I am pleased how it looks now

So never give up on an image there will be a time to pull it back out and give it another go

That is as good a HH as I've seen Les, stunning and fantastic swirls within the Ha. Beautifully processed. You must be really pleased

That was a issue also the red was just to red ;) and its kind of hard to figure out what it will look like after you change it to Jpeg from a tiff file in Photoshop

I basically had to use the select tool on certain areas of the image

Thanks again for the kind words

Brilliant Les...

Superb imaging and awesoem processing...

Thanks for sharing all that "red channel noise" infront of the HHN that people usually process out of their images - especialy the "stem" coming from the flame behind the Ha makes me feel a lot better about mine from a few months ago now as I deliberately left it in... ;)

Awesome, and would I be right in thinking this is with your DSLR?

If so then EVEN better ;)

Thanks Guys, I have to say if you have a shopping list add a HA filter to it you will not regret it I use the Astronomik 13nm clip in filter for the EOS

Not quite sure I understand the PS layering but it's worked very well indeed. Fantastic imaging.
