Jim -

I love your image! It is just beautiful.

I just had to open it in Photoshop for a closer look - I hope you don't mind. I reduced the saturation of the blue and cyan and increased the sharpness just a wee bit. It may not be an improvement but have a look and see what you think.

Very beatiful image Jim. I personally love the soft processing, the "eyepiece look" you gave this picture. No need to overprocess to bring out detail because it is all there. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know anything about the atik camera you use: do you collect avis and then process them as you would with webcam's avis? If so, how many images did you collect and how many did you eventually use for the image posted?

Ciao Jim

Hi Jim,

Excellent! image, I really like the smooth not over processed look and good edge definition with no limb darkening.

Amazing shot Jim! Congrats, easily one of the best this season, especially given how crappy an altitude it has from our latitudes!!
