NGC 6992

Recommended Posts

First time on this target , 

 

I managed to get 3.5 hours last time with my DSLR camera , I have to say the new filter Quandband is excellent.

 

I still need to improve my guide scope and post processing software , I used GImp and Starnet.

 

I like the result tough and I hope you like it too.

 

Clear skies to all!

Looks good. Just needs more time on it to bring out the detail.

That's pretty good, I would think there is probably more in that data set that you can bring out

Thanks

 

I am thinking to add some additional hours of exposure and process everything again on GIMP.

 

next time it should be better!

I had a little play with your image Gabs. You seriously clipped the black in the image, this will result in a lot of fine detail being lost. Try to keep away from the l/h side of the histogram, never go past the end of the curve. I managed to drag a little detail out of your image. Might be worth you process it again, just stretch the image using the midtone slider in levels, and touch the dark slider gradually until you start moving the curve to the left.

 

The top image is yours, noticed the histogram curve is clipped in the black. The second image is one of mine, showing what the histogram should look like. The third is yours with some more detail extracted.
