I finally processed the Pelican Nebula

get.jpg?insecure

 

I tried the SHO-AIP script but ended up going with LRGB with Ha as a Lum.

 

Processing included ABE (degree of 1, 1-2 passes) on the channels, ArcSinh intial stretch, HT, and CTs for each channel.  Post combination, iterative applications of CurvesTransformations.

 

Still have the magenta stars.  Something to learn...

rockstarbill,

 

I knew I'd seen that somewhere.  I have it bookmarked now.  (Also have the process icon.)

 

Thanks!

No problem.

 

For those following this thread, I may offer up some recent data I just got with the ASI183MM Pro camera. This time, the data is LRGB and is not all that good. The reason I say "may" is that the problem with the data is massive tilt, so the data may not be all that useful in the end. 

 

Let me know your thoughts.

First thanks for sharing this is great data. Ive been struggling with what I have captured over the last couple month processing it and haven't had anything new in quite a while due to travel and terrible weather.

Anyhow processed Pelican and it was very easy to do so that means I need to re-evaluate my data capture and pre-processing as my data isn't even close and has been terrible to get to look decent. Also need a new workstation this took me about 10X what it should have as I was just waiting and waiting for things to finish. Did a crop, TGV and MMT, LF then Pixlemath for Combination. Arcsinh stretch, it didn't need SNCR. Then curves and color boost a little playing around with hue.HDR transform and Local hist Eq to bring out contrast and MLT for sharpening

Sorry this doesn't look nearly as good as a JPG

The next image I brought it into Photoshop to play around with some things ive learned. Added a Lum layer, selective color, vibrance and saturation. added small and large scale high pass sharpening with hide mask and finally some Astronomy Tool sand Annies action tools. Again jpg doesn't look nearly as good.

Question here is did I go too much on sharpening of the small details? Thanks again this was a pleasure to process for once I was getting pretty bummed processing my past data.

miwitte,  I'm partial to the softer color of your PI version (it's closer to mine wink.gif )  It's interesting to see others' interpretation of the data.

I would be interested in the ASI180MM Pro data.  The way the forecast here looks, it will be several weeks before I can even dial in the exposures for my ASI 1600MM Pro with my light pollution and longer still to get good data.

I had a go at the Pelican data. Very nice data indeed! Thanks for posting it :-)

 

This is the best i could do, although my workflow was all over the place, and not methodical at all. I guess when it's not your own data you don't care as much tongue2.gif

 

All done in Photoshop.

Wonderful renditions of the data here! Makes me miss that QSI camera. smile.gif

 

Tilt with the 183MM is not solved and the camera is being replaced.

Good to hear you're getting a replacement.  Hope it's a winner!

Thanks. I also bought a QSI6120-WSG8, if High Point was not lying about having one left in stock.

Thanks Joe, for the kind words about the data. The Sony ICX sensors are incredible. I receive my ICX 834 based QSI6120 on Monday and I am completely thrilled!

Yeah, great data and great times for AP.  I just bought the ZWO ASI 094 a few months ago to use with my Tak.  Haven't had a huge chance to use it but the FOV with the Tak.  I can't wait to get some large mosaics and push APP to its max.

My final attempt.  It's so nice to not have to use noise reduction on such clean data!

Well I guess the weather kept me indoors with not much to do so here is RSB's Crescent.  The Soap Bubble is evident too.  Nice capture.

Just an update as to this stickie's status ...

 

It's been up for a month, and it's staying active. I'm willing to give this another month to keep the awareness high. After that, I think we need to consider a stickie for data sets only - leave the processing to other threads.

Excellent! This should allow me to share some fresh data from the 6120. :)

Well here is another set of your data.  Calibrated and stacked in APP.  Aligned in Registar. Ha, 50/50 Ha/OIII, OIII combine in PS.
