M31 - Reprocessed with Pixinsight
 
I took the time to re-processed my M31 LRGB and learn about Pixinsight.  I'm very happy with the results. I could probably sharpen the details at the core of the galaxy a bit, but in general, I'm happy with color balance and details.
 
It's a great example of what you can do from a Bortle 8 sky during clear nights, great imaging and great processing.
 
Best regards,
 
M.

Thanks a lot! I enjoyed reading your note. In 3 since I started, this is my best shot yet, and it's been quite a learning curve figuring out how to process LRGB, learning a new software (Pixinsigh), but you really as much software power as you can get when it comes to dealing with light pollution noise, and a very sensitive camera like the QHY9M.

Absolutely inspiring. Especially knowing the Bortle rating.


This is a fantastic shot. I agree with you about the sharpening... sometimes I feel it's better to leave it loose. For instance, in my experience with VIEWING the Pleiedes (sp?), it is almost better to leave them JUST out of focus.... they twinkle just a bit more. ;)

Nice work.
