M106 - LRGB

Post by Paramount »

I managed to get out and do some colour data on Monday night and although the half moon was high in the sky in the south I tried for 10 minute sub frames and shot 12x10 minutes each for RGB to go with the luminance that I shot a week or so ago. This was colour combined in Maxim DL so I didn't work on the luminance and RGB separately, I tried doing it separately but wasn't happy with the result. Processing was mainly levels, curves, contrast with some minor saturation added and a shadows/highlights adjustment. The full size high resolution image is at http://www.pbase.com/image/133890265/original and the luminance image can be see on the galaxies page in the image gallery of my website http://www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk for comparison
Thanks for looking
Best wishes

Wonderful effort. I love these LRGB images, the extra work required really pays off.
