hi all,

this is a image I took this week of m66 with a Takahashi Mewlon 250 on a MI 250 mount autoguided by a STV. It's a sum of six 5 minute expopsures. I have some color data which I work on soon.

m82 reprocessed with layers

Posted By Larry Citro

hi all,

I've been fooling around with my new found tool in Paintshop Pro. I've reprocessed my image of M82 to show more core detail. Thanks Ron !

m82 learning how to process helps

Posted By Larry Citro

hi,
Here are two images of m 82 both are using the same raw data ( Takahashi Mewlon 250 LRGB 30:10:10:10 mins ST8E ).

The first is a LRGB combine in MaximDL2 with digital processing and some histogram adjustment and the second was processed in MaximDL3 and PaintshopPro with layers and zonal processing ( about 1 yr later and a lot of time learning the tricks ).

Clera skies,
