Garnet Star (Final process)

#1

Post by Larry 1969 »

I came across a slightly different technique for processing and applied it to this image.
I'm pretty happy with it. I'm moving on to other targets for the season. Let me know what you think...

I like the contrast of colors created by having the bright halo around the star.

Thanks Greenman!
I posted my workflow in this thread along with some images.
I was trying to illustrate the difference made with just one change in processing.

Thank you!
I stumbled across it in a Facebook group. The image was wide field and looked really cool.
I wondered how my set up would capture it so I gave it a try.

I received a reply on Facebook from a fellow astrophotographer about my image.
He pointed out a very faint object in my image that I hadn't noticed.
Here's his reply:

"Excellent, actually you have in your picture a very interesting object, it is at 11 O´clock as a small faint image, it is recorded as "PN G100.4+04.6 -- Possible Planetary Nebula" and its coordinates are 21 40 59.1 and +58 58 37.0, can you see it?"

I thought it was a messed up star at first... How cool! :cool:
