NGC 6188 redux new
      #5531521 - 11/21/12 04:48 AM Attachment (9 downloads)

The second time I went to Namibia, I imaged this and publish this result

http://skymonsters.net/immagine.php?img=NGC6188.jpg

however, improving my processing techniques led me to retry some of my previous processed images. Some of them didn't give me much more then I obtained the first try, but some benefit by the new processing workflow. NGC 6188 is one of them.

I hope you like it. C&C always welcome!
Nicola

Nicola, That's beautiful! It's like celestial storm clouds. The detail and colors are intense. Whatever your new processing is, it works!!

Thanks Gary! Yes, it does work
Basically my workflow is now (for DSLRs):

- IRIS for calibration and frame registration
- PICTools for stacking and stretching
- PixInsight or PS (soon GIMP) for final adjustments

That is amazing. I am just a beginner, but hope to someday take images like that.

Great job on the reprocessing Nicola - you brought out some really nice contrast throughout the image and improved the colors quite well.
