Elephant’s Trunk Widefield - combined integration

Recommended Posts

Thought it might be worth having a go at combining the Samyang 135mm and the Redcat captures together to see if anything usable would come out of it.

Still haven't mastered Astro Pixel Processor for this kind of thing yet, but I ended up with something I could work with (once croppped).

This is a fairly drastic crop of  (100 x 60s) + (86 x 120s) subs combined.

Stripped out the stars, fixed the halo on Garnet Star before recombining.

Basic stretches, Camera Raw Filter processing, a bit of Astro Flat Pro to sort out the mosaic artefacts and a small bit of star reduction.

APP, starnet++ & Photoshop

difficult to get consistency between what I am seeing on my iMac to what end up posted

I have a Datacolor SpyderX Pro to calibrate my monitors. It works on my mac too. Expensive but well worth the investment if serious about photography.
