Barnard's Galaxy using Version 1.8

Post by Russ.Carpenter »

This text and image were uploaded to Astrobin this morning https://www.astrobin.com/4a8xqy/ Once again, version 1.8 yielded a beautiful result.

Barnard’s Galaxy (NGC 6822), 2021 Version

This year I was motivated to improve an image I captured of Barnard’s Galaxy in 2020. I doubled the number of subframes and added subframes for Ha. In addition, I was fortunate to have new strategies in StarTools that enhance processing of tiny stars and Ha accents in galaxies. The resulting image more successfully captures the faint parts of the galaxy and highlights Ha regions.
