Need some help with DBE
« on: 2017 January 22 03:17:12 »
Hi,

I am currently working on IC447 (example attached). Now I want to do DBE but I am lost because in this image I do
not find any background.

How would you approach DBE in such an image?

Thank you,

Wolfgang

Hi Iosif,

so your recommendation is to use ABE instead of DBE with substraction? According to the Pixinsight documentation ABE should only be used in simple
cases where a lot of background is visible but this is more a complex case...

Background Neutralization etc is clear for me, I have done quite a lot of images already.

My question is refering to DBE or ABE only where to put the samples if no background is visible..

THank you,
Wolfgang

It appears you have fairly nebula-free sky above center, in the upper-right and upper-left corner regions. You can used the 'symmetry' part of DBE if you assume that the gradients are fairly symmetrical about the center. I've shown one point and its vertical & diagonal equivalents. (See the check marks in the upper area of the DBE control window.) I presume the procedure would take those to symmetrical points and assume the same qualities for them as the initial point in the upper-right quadrant.

Also, note that you can drag the white lines (which define the center of symmetry, etc) around.

Finally, do the background adjustment while the images are linear.
