I'm looking to have someone whose highly experienced in astro image processing try their methods on an image or two of mine. This would mostly be just for fun and to try and judge how my processing techniques are coming along since I've only been at this less than a year. I feel like my processing skills are fairly basic but my results have been pretty decent considering my unconventional setup. I image with a modified 17.5" f4.5 dobsonian tracking with ServoCAT and I can manage 20 second exposures on a good night but usually 10-15 is what I stick with. I stack in DSS and process in Photoshop 2020. I'm interested to see what someone with more experience (and probably using PI) can mange compared to what I'm ending up with. I've been generally happy with my results but I always wonder if more could be done with my current data and I just don't know how to do it.
If anyone would be willing to do this, I would greatly appreciate the time and effort. My M42 is my favorite image and I think it provides a unique view of a commonly imaged target. Being my favorite, I would be interested in having that one done along with either M1 or one of my galaxy images. Check out my Astrobin account here to see the targets I've imaged so far: https://www.astrobin.../tjschultz2011/
I shoot with an unmodified Canon 6D attached to a Paracorr II CC and with no filters. I also use flats, darks, and bias frames for all my images. If anyone is interested please let me know and I could send over a TIF file. Here's the M42 image in question:
