Really nice. You've captured the extended glow, too.

You've got very nice detail on the individual color planes, but they are slightly distorted with respect to each other. The red and green are slightly elongated vertically, and the blue is slightly compressed. You can see a discontinuity in particular at about the 1-2 o'clock position at the top right edge.

You could try something like Mira or Registar to morph the color channels back to round, but something like MATLAB might be required. It's way too expensive, unfortunatly - not sure if there is a less expensive product that will do what MATLAB can do.

My observatory is done!

Congrats on getting the observatory completed. Looks really nice. What's the pass-through for - sandwiches in the dead of night?

M57 Re-Processed

Posted By Ron Wodaski

This is much smoother. I think it is over-processed, however; those spidery details are not present in the nebula. Try backing off a bit on the sharpening or deconvolution and see what you get.

For example, the lines in the center are actually nearly straight, not curves.
