M20 Starless

We have to try these things, the latest trend perhaps...

Starnett++ removes the stars, for what purpose you might ask?

Art I suppose.

It must be accepted (or popular) since Pixinsight have incorporated a module called 'Starnet'.

I applied the process to my M20, and it's sort of interesting, I think...

Spooky . Maybe you can put back colourful stars you like the look of.

Hi Peter,

I think this is the first starless M20 I’ve seen and I like it ! The detractors will have their say but one way to look at it is that it still has scientific merit. It’s not just “ Art “. If you are interested in bone structure, you don’t take a photo that includes the skin do you ? So if your interest of study is the structure of the gas clouds then a starless image gives you that. Just my 2 cents. Great image. Well done ��

Cheers

Ryan

That looks cool.

I think the main purpose is so that you can process your nebulosity and stars separately. Stretching faint nebulae tends to wash out star colour etc.

Looks great, I use Starnet as a standalone application, seperate my stars from the nebula and mainly high pass filtering. The difficulty I found is that stretching the nebula separately is that putting the stars back in do not look 100%. Still learning this process experimenting as i go.

I quite like it, Normally I'm not a fan of starless images but this one is different for some reason.

At the least, M20 'naked' seems to have created a bit of interest.

Maybe, during creation it might have looked a bit like that, who knows.

According to Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope, the are 30 embryonic and 120 newborn stars hidden
from us (in visible light).

I bet 'starless++' couldn't find them either :-)
