Hi all!

 

I show you my first image in this forum!

 

It's an image of LDN1622 in the Orion constellation taken from Pioz, Spain (SQM 21.00) in 3 nights: 2 for Luminance and 1 for RGB

 

The processing was a bit difficult due to the light pollution of this area. Madrid is 40km away...

 

I hope you like it!

Hi Alvaro!

Nice to see you here (too).
I like the "blackness" of the dust. It's key to realize the deepness of the image.
And the rest of the image, very well processed, as usual. Congratulations!

Question, why your stars have spikes?

Hi Alberto! thank you so much. I'm glad to see you here smile.gif

 

The spikes are caused by the sensor microlenses. The kaf16200 have microlenses and the larger the pixel size, the larger the spikes.

I've had it confirmed by my 460ex too, something smaller.

Yes, the spikes give a special look to the stars. I like it :)
