I haven't really posted many images in my first year in this world. Most weren't very good, and even if I thought they were, they didn't meet the standards of this gang!
I have spent the last couple months on 2 targets. The Orion Nebula, and the Rosette Nebula. I have about 60+ hours on Orion, but it is an HDR, so I still have to figure out how to process the data... The Rosette on the other hand, is a nice simple narrowband nebula, making the processing more "normal".
Says the guy with no clue in the PI world!
I have about about 40 hours of narrowband data on the Rosette Nebula. After Blinking and subframe selector, it is about 32 hours of good stuff!
I used the new WBPP script in PI to get masters for Ha, OIII, and SII. I then used PixelMath the build a Hubble Palette image. I did a simple stretch to Non-linear and output a tiff. A little bit of Lightroom before outputting a jpeg.
I had a couple of "civilians" in the room while I did the edit, so I know I pushed a few things. That said, I am all about the community input on this one. Are my stars bad? Guiding sucks? Camera is tilted? I also know that I pushed the SHO thing a bit. Do you hate the colors??
I also have an HSO of this image, but will deal with that in a different post.
