Assistance with M45
« on: 2015 December 20 11:14:55 »
I am having issues with my M45.  I am having issues with HDR and contrast enhancement. I have tried several different masks and settings and just can't seem to get a decent result. I can't tame the HDR to my liking.  Im beginning to think I need to get short exposures to do a HDR composition. 

70X600 lum with QSI 583, AT 65edq.

Here is my first attempt. I had to give up on HDR and used Masked stretch.  Still have issues with star cores
