M42 and Running Man- Reprocessed

I have not tried this one for some years so I thought i'd give another try with the new setup

2 hours with my QHY10 OSC and W.O 110mm

Thanks for looking.



Image Reprocessed....

Still a little noisy.. more subs next time.

The trap is now not as blown out and image shows more detail than before

Comments, suggestions welcome

Thanks Geoff

Sorry Geoff, I'll go against the grain on this one. I like the colours but the noise reduction or something else in the processing destroyed all the details. Did you have bad seeing or was the original shot noisy? Anyway a repro is in order and you should then have a real cool shot.

Ditto, nice colours but the detail is sadly lacking.

Stars look a little bloated and the trap is not resolved at all.

...there are more than enough "M42 standard candles" on the web
from which you can gauge your efforts or better help tweak the final image.

Stick with it

G'day Geoff. I have to admit, my prejudice against OSC images takes a bit of a hit when I see the colors and balances you have achieved.

Hi Bob

Yes, taken from Brisbane. I'm 12km from the CBD.

No filters, Pixinsight DBE usually fixes any gradients pretty well

Cheers Geoff
