Re: Milky Way

Trouble is once you know whats out there it become quite a challenge to capture it. Stallarium is a great help to see whats out there in the sky.
I did this exercise to test the Sequator software stacking having previously tried milkyway landscape processing with DSS lightroom and elements with no results I would want to share. I wanted to see how it handled the aerials and trees. The only thing I would like to see improved at the moment is the ability to make a smaller circle for the masking process or some form of smart master selection tool.

Re: Milky Way

This is stacked in photomatix pro. I doubt I can do any better.

Re: Milky Way

That looks pretty impressive to me Henry. What lens and settings did you use for that one?

This has much potential Henry as good as this image is you will improve on this as you develop your processing.
I have not used photomatrix but I can see star trailing which should not be there in 10 x 10sec exposures. I think photomatrix is an HDR process and has not stacked and aligned the stars. For this type of framing (i.e no landscape) I would used Deep Sky Stacker (free) and I would process in Lightroom or Startools (65 AUD).

Re: Milky Way

I really like how this thread has developed, it will be a great help to many I’m sure. Embarrassingly I haven’t been out and tried yet, I got sidetracked by a cloud inversion (that I missed!)
