3-fer M105, M95 and M96

#1

Post by starfield »

I had a three hour window last night to keep working on my Messier list. Here's a quick shot of M105 and friends. Always feels like the Leo Triplet gets all the love.

This is the first shot I've ever processed end-to-end in PI. Got some funky gradients in the middle that I introduced somewhere along the way (Borttle 7-8 skies don't help). I'm not quite sure where I introduced this, so I'll probably take another shot once I finish the DBE tutorial.

3 more down. Another 70 to go!

This is build from 35 frames lum and 20 frames each RGB. All at 120 second at 120 gain.
