Centaurus A

I thought I would revisit a previous target of Centaurus A, though really a bad time of the month with moon only getting brighter. I kept the subs to 180 and managed to get 120 of them before sleep started to win.

There are still some little dusty's in the image but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

A very smart Centaurus A that you’ve captured there Karl. Nice work.

Nice one Karl,
How did you get the blue colour at the periphery of the dust lanes?

Chris.

All I used Chris was my IR cut filter, I use lightroom over photoshop as it has a broader range of colour that you can tweak. Pretty much my flow is APP for stacking and minor tweaks (depending), photoshop for gradients to lightroom for all other tweaks (contrast, HL , colour and so forth) back to PS for the final sizing. That's about all I do with most of my images, I'll get PI when I can as there are some great tools to use. Hope that helps.

Karl
