Hi,

 

Below another reprocessed image of  Sinus Iridum (sea of rainbows) the illumination was quite good this time, with enough shadows but none too dark so a lot of details was present, Seeing and transparency during this session were also above average. Let me say I myself am quite pleased with the result.

Captures with CFF CC300 f/20 + ASI174MM + Baader orange filter.

 

Out of 2500 frames 20% was kept for stacking in Autstakkert!3 using drizzle 1.5X and 48px alignment points.

On the raw stack a lucy richardson deconvolution was performed in Lynkeos.

The resulting image was further processed in Adobe photoshop CC.

 

processing in photoshop includes , Hig pas filters, unsharp mask, levels, curves,... In sone tough areas sometines a bit of manual touchup is done (dodge/burn).

 

Enjoy,

 

feel free to share your comments.

 

Wouter.
