Bubble Narrowband
« on: 2013 November 07 09:38:50 »
This is my first image that was calibrated combined and almost totally edited in PI. PS 6 used for final tweaking only.

Apogee U16 + Edge HD 11+ Astrodon + Tak EM 400

HA 22 X 30min S2 22 x 30 O3 22 x 30    RGB 20 X 10 each

Warren Keller's tutorial's and the recent AIC was very helpful.

Pixel math experimentation to combine.

Excellent work. Although, I would prefer a little darker background.

Marc,

well done! Unusual but really pleasing view of the bubble!
How have you managed the diffraction spikes with the Edge HD; I ask because they are really thin and nice!

Best!

Hi Marc,

That's a great Bubble image! That really has a lot of `wow' factor. I can't think of another Bubble image I've seen like that. Interesting composition, interesting orientation, nice and sharp, lots of IFN... that image has a lot of great qualities.

I like the color palette, too, in much the same way that I like Davide De Martin's color palette in his DSS-based images. That's a cool orange!

Zocky-- I agree I think I need to darken the background

Lex-- I admit the star spikes are from post process-- guess I cheated Jay Gabany turned me on to this plugin : http://www.prodigitalsoftware.com/StarSpikesPro2.html

Unusual image that works really well--quite spectacular really, although I must admit that I don't like the idea of messing with the diffraction spikes.
