IC 1805 20 Hours with Atik 460ex
      #5538833 - 11/25/12 02:21 PM

This is my longest project yet: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ajtedesco/8217175791/sizes/l/in/photostream/

After doing it, I have realized that no matter how many hours of subs you capture, you always wish you had done more.

Ha -- 15 x 20 Minutes
O2 -- 21 x 20 Minutes
S2 -- 26 x 20 Minutes

Very rich area with lots of detail. I like your color saturation. Great signal with all those hours of exposure. Excellent image.

This is a nice image! Congrats!

How do you 'get rid' of the natural green cast of the HST palette?

Cheers,

Jose

Beautiful AJ, very nice colors! Assuming you used noise reduction or smoothing, I'd like to see a variation with a little less smoothing to see if some of the details within your image might pop a little more.

Thanks all!

Very nicely done! I second on Warren's statement on the noise reduction. But overall, a very nice image!

I took everyone's advice and reprocessed the last few steps. This time I used the noise reduction in Nebulosity rather than PS. I am much happier with it now. I agree, the last version was a little soft.
