Re: Deconvolution Leaving circle artifact - M31

Hi,

I tried masking but couldn't get that to work, perhaps it is over-exposed, I will try reprocessing when I get chance.

I haven't had any similar issues so perhaps it's my processing, I will try again.

Thanks

Jon

Re: Colour Module - Unexpected behaviour

Thanks almacl, I will look at that. The single colour balance was ok with ST but I wanted to bring more warmth to M31 without getting bright red rings around the stars. I managed to get what I wanted with a bit of post processing using Affinity, see image, but was trying to find a way of doing this ...

Colour Module - Unexpected behaviour

Hi, I have an image of M31 and want to boost the colours within the galaxy without changing the colour of the stars in the image. I feel I should be able to do this using star masks but I seem to get inconsistent results, can anyone help? I am starting with my standard process which is : Enter Colou...

Hi, I have been using ST for a couple of years now and never had this issue before, spent a few hours trying different things but cant fix it, can anyone help.

Re: North American and Pelican - 6 Panel Mosaic in SHO

Stunning Image.

Could you outline the process you used for getting the SHO colours, I've been trying to attempt it for months and really struggling?

Thanks

Bode and Cigar RGB

The Rosette went behind a hedge at midnight on Friday, too early to quit so took these - 8 x 300sec each of RGB. Processed through a very typical Star Tools workflow - just went through the relevant modules top to bottom after initially cropping edge artifacts out. Awesome processing package. Thanks...

C49 Rosette Bicolour Ha + OIII

The "gold" image used just very basic processing through the normal modules - Autodev, Crop, Wipe, Dev, Contrast, HDR, Decon, Sharp, Life, Noise. The image with the blue was me practicing with layers. I added OIII which I had set to Blue in Colours to the fg and dabbled with settings until I got thi...

Re: IC1805 NB - How do I get where I need to be?

Pease Ignore the above, I have made some progress helped very much by the Layer Module thread that Guy put together but also the M45 thread.
I haven't managed to get where I want to be yet but I think I have made quite a bit of progress with IC410.
