It took two weeks during which time we have seen cloud cloud cloud over SE Spain…but SGP especially with Plate Solve 2 came up trumps every time. Some nights just one sub, other nights multiple subs with pier flip…all worked really great to help me come up with a final image:
A beautiful rendition Brendan.
Thanks Ray - appreciated.
Nice one Brendan - Great colours and nice detail
Good morning Sara - Muchas Gracias
Really nice. That is a very delicate rendition, avoiding the temptation to make it like a cartoon.
A suggestion if I may - in SGP, try an additional set of events, R,G,B, for short exposures (no more than 5 mins) and use this to blend in real color information into the stars.
I have in the back of my mind that I should do some RGB for ALL my future
NB images. This will be on my ‘to do’ list for this one also - it would
help it immensely. But not this week I am afraid
I reprocessed this image - same data, just some more time spent on it. Link to Flickr page with the full resolution shot: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kinch-astro/21604777274/sizes/o/
