This is my second processed image with the L-enhance filter. I actually took these subs 2 days before my AT115 image so these were taken on the night of and after the full Moon in my red zone backyard!
I used my Edge8 @ f10 which produces blows away the .7x reducer on the corner stars. So it's either enjoy the reducer speed and crop heavily or slog along @ f10 speed but with no need to crop out ratty looking corner stars at all which is what I did here. This is 114x 180 second subs at unity gain. And at f10 I still needed even more time! But this was every sub I could collect over two nights.
I processed it the same way as the AT115EDT image.
I think it's neat to compare the different results with same duration subs at f5.6 and 644mm vs f10 @2030mm. More detail and resolution in the Edge8 but I think richer colors and in the AT115EDT.
I have the full frame resized to 1600x1200 for posting and then a cropped frame at 1 arc-sec/pixel scale. I stretched this a bit too hard and started getting some combing in the histogram and some noise. The background has a sort of washed out dark look that I don't really like too much. But it will be fun to do more work with this new filter and learn how to process it the best way.
Thanks for looking and C&C are always welcome...
