Truth is the cubed root of Verbosity.
Quote:My Word Guys !
I spend this afternoon reprocessing my Jupiter image, (posted here earlier), only to find by coming back to this thread, no less than 12 further postings on both planetary and DSO "stuff"; notwithstanding images from Robin, (Lobot), Andy (Mushroom Bill) and Tom, (Haytor). A lot to digest, in one trawl, guys !
Quote:Many thanks for your kind words but your image of Jupiter surpasses mine by a mile !
I took a quick "look" at it in Photoshop and Registax 6 and I reckon you have something there of which even the great Damien Peach would be envious ! (See attached).
Have you said, somewhere along the line what camera you are using ?
Equipment... Uncle Toms cabin observatory. some of this, some of that and some of the other! I am made of Star stuff, nothing more! Light Polution is so bad here, i call it the "twilight zone".
Astronomy compels us to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.

Quote:Tel, the Cali nebula image is only from filtered exposures. I haven't delved into layering with visual wavelength shots yet. If you have any tips for doing that I am, as they say, all ears!
Thanks for your lengthy and thoughtful reply. I am, indeed, hamstrung by the Hyperstar with regard to filtering (no room for a wheel and removing the camera to switch filters is cumbersome) and my SXV is a one-shot color camera.
I am wondering about adding an HA layer to the one-shot color to enhance some details. I think I know how to do this by brute force methods in PS but haven't mustered the energy for the attempt yet. I was hoping for a simple, elegant approach
