M33
« on: 2013 September 07 14:08:26 »
This is a 9 hour image of M33 I finished today. It was taken in Mayhill, New Mexico with an FCT 150 and an SBIG 11000M.

Post processing was all PixInsight. HDR Multiscale Transform and Local Histogram Equalization made a huge difference. I used both with a Range Mask.

Nice image!

M33 is a bit of an obsession of mine; oh how I dream of getting a good image of it someday. Yours is very good.

This is going to sound like a weird way to compliment an image, but one of the things I like about the colors in this image is that the remind me a bit of Ektachrome 200, such as in Jim Cormier's wide-field Milky Way images. I know that's a strange way to compliment an image, but I think it's something that looks cool! :-)

Thanks Marek. I just posted a new version with three hours of Ha added. It helps.

BTW I own a Hassleblad so I know what you are saying about film.
