NV Image Gallery Rules (Unlimited Integration):

 

Image posts in the galleries must include an observing report that contains a minimum of:
1) time and date of the observation (seeing & transparency conditions are optional)
2) name and/or catalog number of the object(s) of interest
3) integration time (seconds/# of frames) and the software/process used for the “live” capture in their text.
4) a discussion of observations that covers what was seen, anything that stood out, anything that was interesting, (if appropriate) number of times object observed or if it was the first time observed.

 

Additional information to illustrate your techniques and equipment used, to assist other members, is encouraged and appreciated. Post-processing of EAA images is not allowed under any circumstances.

 

Edited to add: Our view on post-processing is basically any enhancement process occurring after the capture software has saved the final image into a storage device. The key word being enhancement, image manipulation like cropping, zooming, rotating, annotating, inverting, and file size compression is deemed acceptable.

 

Those that do not conform will be removed without notice. Repeat offenders will be subject to loss of forum access.
