Adam Block posted a new way to develop LRGB images, so I had to try it out. 

 

I imaged M13 (40min each RGB, 1hr L)

 

Here is what I got.

I've been following that new series as well and applying it to a couple of my images.There are indeed a couple of things I really like  BUT do not try and create a superlum image from 2000+ 117MB images, well unless you want to waste an entire day!!! But dang the IFN I'm now able to pull out and noise, what noise?!?!?!

 

I LOVE your image and results! IF(!!!!) I ever get a clear night with no moon M13 is next on my list and your image is making me both jealous and frustrated (why do I only get clear night when its a full moon???)

I feel you it's been a really dicey spring here in Colorado. Hopefully things will get better quickly.

I think what we need are new pier mounts, about a 20,000 foot tall one!

 

On the bright side we both missed all that hail and tornadoes yesterday but am bracing for this afternoon as the clouds, here, are building!

Yesterday I tried the idea of super lum on my M81/M82 data. I was relatively limited on my lum compared my typical integrations. It definitely improved that channel.

Did you try it exactly like Adam showed or did you not add in a 'Rejection algorithm' == ESD?

I'm wondering if leaving it at 'my' default with 'No rejection' would speed things up a lot. I've just been shy (time wise) about trying it.

Seriously it took >>6 times longer to just do ImageIntegration then it took to run WBPP itself!

I ran it with PSF Signal Weighting, which is what I normally do. I also tossed in the Ha data that I had. I do have a pretty good Ryzen based workstation maxed out on ram.

Just as an FYI in case you missed the EMail. The data (M83) for the LRGB tutorial is now available!

A beautiful rendering of M13 -- one of the best I've seen.  The colors are very natural and pleasing.  Well done!
