Another another star color

Post by gardenfish » Mon Jan 23, 2017 4:24 pm

Ok, so after Doug helped me and showed me the problems with the OIII in the IC410 NB picture I decided to look further. When I put the subs into DSS I , as always, checked each one to get rid of bad subs. There were 5 Ha, 3 OIII, and 3 SII subs. I did not remember any blatantly bad subs before I combined so I checked again. They all looked pretty good. So Looking at the final sub that Doug pointed out to me that looked really bad like it a tracking problem must be because of something I did .

So I restacked the Ha-OIII-SII subs without darks as I remembered someone,I think Zach, said once about a problem I was having before that darks messed up the frame somehow. Any way the newly stacked subs do not have the problems I was having before. I put them together just as the first time and got a lot better NB picture than before. Still could be better but that is something I will learn as we go.

I would love to give some one the original 11 - 1200s subs to see what a good process in PI could do......hint....hint.

I could not get the blues as much in this one as the previous try but still it is a lot better

If some one would like to play with my subs in PI let me know. Thanks Rick

Looks better Rick!

That's weird about the darks.

I think the Tone Mapping is about one of the best things you can do for so few subs. I don't think PI is going to be much different.

I think if you post up your fits stacks of each filter on dropbox and post the links here, we could have a play with them and see what we come up with......

I will try tonemapping it looks like a great idea. Is there a best way to get rid of the stars? I will check Zachs posts, I think he is removing stars.

I tried the star removal from the link but not great results so far.

Still for my first NB SHO it gives me inspiration.

If you check that Tone Mapping Link, there is an Action for download (Free) for star removal. This action set, does an "ok" job, but, there's lots of work you need to follow up on cleaning up the leftovers.

Yeah I tried it but like you say a lot of work still to do. The only way I know of is the clone tool in LR. Is that the best way?

Or the healing brush works well too.
