Astroimaging – Part 2 – Image processing

  • Coleshill Village Hall Barracks Hill Amersham, England, HP7 United Kingdom (map)

Now for the cool part (though some call it the Dark Art!) of processing those astro-images you’ve so carefully and painstakingly taken. For this you’ll need your image files and your computer. You’ll need to have some stacking software on your computer (we shall be demonstrating Deep Sky Stacker). Also we shall be using Adobe Photoshop so you need to have that on your machine as well. We’ll be covering the Levels and Curves routines to bring out the detail of those images and showing you a couple of sharpening techniques to improve those images even further. If you haven’t managed to capture images at this stage we’ll have a few we prepared earlier for you to work with. Plus our regular items – planetary round-up, Cullen Objects and a Book of the Month.ow for the cool part (though some call it the Dark Art!) of processing those astro-images you’ve so carefully and painstakingly taken.
