mightymonoped Posted April 21 Share Posted April 21 M13 The Great Globular Cluster in Hercules Added another 1.5 Hrs to this on Wednesday night in windy and mediocre seeing. Bringing total capture over 4 sessions to approx 9 Hours. This was stacked and brutally culled down to 7 hours in Astro Pixel Processor, using its excellent Analysis Graphs. Then used APP to reduce Light Pollution before passing honours to Pixinsight. Ran a SPCC against the image and then a minor NoiseX before a 'restrained' BlurX deconvolution followed by a full NoiseX. Then ran a Super Hyperbolic Stretch using the BB stretch tools before saving the resulting Tiff file and passing final duties to Photoshop. First a push on Colour Saturation using Image/Adjustments/Match Colour (this is a good tool for pushing saturation without introducing noise/artefacts). Finally, used AstroFlat Pro Plugin to sort out the problems caused by rubbish flats over 4 separate sessions. Tony 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
