Re: Milky Way

I really like that version Dave although it does have a little bit too much background colour noise for my taste. Very impressive what you've done with Henry's jpg though.

Re: Milky Way

This may be of interest to Mac users.
Makes doing starry landscapes a lot easier.

Not tried it but looks interesting. There is also a free trial.

Re: Milky Way

Looks like a great shot. No trees make it easier to process.

My last night was a complete washout. They built a new lookout point but included a huge neon signboard. All my shots had an ugly green tint.

Re: Milky Way

I agree with Dave that last shot is great. I'd definitely say it was a successful trip Henry.

Re: Milky Way

Tonight, cloudy.

Well, I do have a quite a bit to do my processing before I post them. Hopefully in time before the close of this month's challenge.

Henry this is good example showing detail, but more detail is in there if you were to have taken 3 x 25 sec instead of using Livetime. The stars show trailing and therefore the milkyway core will also have lost detail because it would also have trailed. As I have said before there is no recovery from trailed stars stick with single exposures and bring them back to process. The only time Composite and livetime may work is by using a tracker.

You are not failing Henry you have really good (envious) dark skies you have shown that your focus and exposures are good. Just bring back plenty of 25sec raw files with different framing sets and in time you will be able to process them like the experts. I am currently revisiting some raw files I took of the milkyway last year. I had disappointing results when I tried to process them last year, now I have changed the way I would normally process astro images using Sequator and Lightroom and getting better images. The point I am trying to make is with good quality raw frames you can do so much, and probably more in the future as methods and software change as your skills develop.

Re: Milky Way

Henry I think sequator sounds the ideal tool to help you get the most out of your Milky Way shots. Its free as well.

Just reading this Sequator. It's not just a JPG stacker, it does RAW (ORF). It must be WOW. Am downloading it to try This should be really interesting
