Stacked median in DSS, processed in CS5 following Jerry L's tutorials. Thanks Jerry, never would have been able to pull the nebulas out of this mess of stars otherwise...:)

Best,

Paul

Thank you all for looking and for the nice comments.

@ Tim The 250 ISO helped a bit with the colors, I'm sure. I only had to pull up the colors a bit with 'Match Color' to get them where they are. Usually I have to do the 'Enhance Star Color' routine.

@ Pepe the stars are pretty, but really do make processing this area a big pain in the neck...:)

All the best,

Paul

I'm kind of curious. I finally got my camera back from Spencer's after 3 months and a visit from the police. He has an "F" rating from the Utah BBB and was an utter flake to deal with. Your experience?

Thanks Francisco and Nils.

@ jhousel, all I can say is "Wow". I didn't have any issues at all, except it took 3 weeks instead of the 2 weeks originally quoted. But, there was a Memorial Day 3 day weekend in the middle of the time period, so I wasn't too concerned.

Guess I got it done just in time??

Clear skies,

Paul

Well, it was a strange experience. I had a Nikon D5200 shipped direct to him based on an impressive web-site. The camera suffered from light leaks internally when I got it back. He was difficult to contact regarding fixing it, then after I sent it back to him he went incommunicado. After discovering the BBB report I grew very anxious, finally asking the local PD to stop by. My camera appeared immediately thereafter and appears to function correctly now...go figure. So I have high hopes for it yet, and will post here when I have those mythical "clear skies".

Thanks for the nice comment Erskin...

@ jhousel, Certainly glad it all worked out in the end, proof will be in how the camera images under clear skies?

I was contemplating sending him a D7100 for modding, now I have to think twice, or maybe 3 times?

Cheers,

Paul

Thank you Mike, I just wish these were in a less densely populated star area so they would 'pop' a bit more.

Best,

Paul

I don't have any experience with Spencer's but I can highly recommend Brent Oliver for modifying Nikons. He is a CN member and posts often under nofxrx. He did a good job on my D5100 and keeps you up to date on his progress.

Regards,

Paul
