Image Processing Challenges / OSC of horsehead
« on: 2019 January 09 20:38:06 »
Hi everyone - my first post to this forum so I hope I havn't broken any rules and that my question is appropriate - if not, I apologise. I am very new to astrophotography but managed to get a photo of my dream target - the horsehead nebula (attached). That said, I use a canon DSLR, so no filters - just point and click. The result is that the image has no contrast and I was wondering if, using pixinsight, it is possible to make the nebula more black and have it stand out from the background so I'm not having to explain to non astronomical friends what the picture is. I've been playing with it for a couple of weeks with very little success. Any guidance/list of instructions on how to do this would be really appreciated.

Many thanks
