This is my very first image I obtained that finally had everything automated with NINA and using my "Garden Shed observatory.   Also my first attempt at post processing anything AP related.  I used DSS and PS...

Very nice image of one of my favorites. A few more exposures and a little sharpening might be in order. Does PS have a deconvolution feature?

I had to go search since I'm new to this,but apparently it's not to difficult to do deconvolution sharpening in PhotoShop. I'll have to watch more tutorials on the cloudy nights.

And thank you to everyone for the kind words. I was so happy when everything actually worked and I was really collecting data. Took me nearly three months to get everything all configured and working properly. (of course I also work night shift, and it's been so cloudy lately, nights that I have free and are clear are difficult to come by!)

Well, last night I tried PI for the first time and reworked my initial photo.  (Yes I also rotated it 180 degrees)   Please feel free to provide feedback!

Wow, I edited this on a calibrated monitor.  Looking at it from my work PC really shows the benefits of color calibrating a monitor!

Nice improvement. You might even be able to add to the overall luminance. I do this with StarTool's development function. So try increasing whatever the same function is in PS.
