Thanks Gunny. What a beautiful Christmas greeting. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well.
Thank you very much Joe. Glad you liked it.
The last object I did was this one. This is a stunning image.
Hi Eric. Thanks for the compliment and Merry Christmas.
Eric stole (took the words from my mouth) my comment: Stunning!
Great shot and great presentation!
The only two things I wish I had done differently Daniel were:
1.) more integration time on the top 2 panels, so as to capture more of the red nebulosity. Weather really played a role in limiting my time.
2.) Better control of the stars. I experimented with various masks and never got exactly what I wanted. A little too much bloat due to noise reduction I think. Kind of rushed it to get things done for Christmas presentation. Always try to have something to post for this time of the year.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind words Daniel. Merry Christmas.
