View Full Version here: : Hubbles Swan - High Res close up
21-07-2012, 02:54 PM
Given the poor and highly variable seeing conditions I enjoy :rolleyes:... I manually went through and selected the very best frames from the Ha, OIIIRG&B, with which to compose the highest resolution image possible for the conditions, took me a while arggg...:help:
With much less data now the outer regions of the full frame have too much noise and noise reduction looks crap, so here is a close up crop of the good bits only without noise reduction and compiled into a Hubble-like palette. I can safely say this is the best my current seeing conditions will allow as far as detail goes :scared: :thumbsup:
Look here: Hubbles Swan (http://www.pbase.com/strongmanmike2002/image/144862280/original) 100% crop
Those who can't remember the full frame RGB like fairy floss version :lol: it's HERE (http://www.pbase.com/strongmanmike2002/image/144807424/original)

Great detail Mike. It's interesting how the nebulosity appears very sharp in the centre of the image but a bit softer further out.

Hi Peter, not sure, there's probably just more finer features in some areas than others, some are smooth pockets and others show wisps and swirls etc..?
Thanks Peter, glad you like it...I stick at data like a dog at a bone sometimes, usually pays off :thumbsup:

:rofl: you crack me up sometimes Mike!back to your image....the detail is amazing!

Oh I wouldn't say amazing, it was just an exercise to squeeze every bit out of my appalling conditions :scared:
Glad you see my humour :thumbsup: a few have taken it seriously in the past :rolleyes: :hi:

Love the detail, Mike! Not sure about the colours but that's just me :D

A great photo Mike.
The detail is amazing, but...I have to admit the "fairy floss" version is still my favourite.

Thankyou three amigos :thumbsup:...seems the colour palettes I used for each of my recent M17 versions are a little polarising...and that's cool, if every image looked the same the imaging world would be just a little boring :)
