Confused with processing
« on: 2015 June 17 09:22:47 »
Hello Everyone please HELP

There is so much info out there and I am confused at what to do. Reviewed Harry's videos as well as Warren's. read numerous tutorials and reviewed entry's on this forum but would love to see how someone using the icons to process my own image. Options on the process are numerous icons and seeing is worth a thousand words. M51  11 ten minute images using SBIG STF 8300C (OSC color image) on a MYT from my house in Sedona AZ. Thanks ahead of time

hi Steve,
nice very deep image! Many Mag 18 and less bright galaxies on it!

Find a processing result here:

Wonderful image. Very low noise so much so I did not use any noise reduction. I felt for my taste it wasn't need with the processing I did. So many faint fuzzies in this image.

Here is what I got. http://www.astrobin.com/full/187792/0/ I am including the history icon of the image. It has the steps and the settings but does not include the many masks I used. Learning to use masks will be a key thing.

Hi Mike!
Excellent work. Like your result!!
The Input data are also really good.

Could you pack the 4 processes for creating the 4 masks used into a process Container, so
we could repeat the processing by using your correct masks.
(DeconLinearMask, star_mask, star_mask1, a_structure_map

Thanks in advance

Gerald

Thanks. I have zipped the masks, container icons and screen shots of the histories. Since some of the masks are combination masks the histories containers can't be used directly that is why I did the screen shots. Each zip should be complete for the particular task. All masks were made at the point they appear in the main image history. I've included star_mask in the Decon zip.
