Astrophotography

6978 I'd wish I could make something like that! Mosfet , is not that hard! I was just following  midtskogen idea of background removal. To achieve that using PixInsight I just had to create a mask to protect brightest stars and galaxies, and then I streched the image with the Histogram Transformati...

Astrophotography

Well, after 4 hours of multiple sessions with different expositions (51x30s, 39x90s, 62x90s and 20x240s, each one at ISO800), this is the final result:

I don't think it's possible to make any more improvement without a better and darker sky. Any thoughts?

6251 did you edit a tiff or jpg file, also whats the original resolution of this image? I stacked RAW files into a TIFF file, and that TIFF file was the one that I processed. 6339 I've found it's better to push exposure times longer (as long as star streaks aren't apparent) and keep the ISO to 400-...

Bambusman, After some background substraction this is what I got:

Astrophotography

Watsisname ,  I like that idea. So as soon as I get more lights to stack I'll try it, because right now I'm enjoying my 45 days trial of PixInsight, but after that I will have to go back to Photoshop. Using DSS I stacked the lights from last night and the ones from the night before that (all of the...

Astrophotography

First, thank you very much for your advices! 6180 as for anyone i can always recommend stacking,for your images i would take atleast 30-50 lightframes and 30-50 darkframes with iso 1600 or 800 and 15 to 25 sec exposure. Sorry that I didn't say this in the original post, but those images are both aft...

Astrophotography

I have a couple of questions and maybe somebody can help me. I live in Madrid and there is a lot of light pollution, however, I have the Astronomik CLS filter. I understand that that's not ideal, but it's all I got. I've been using it with my camera on my SkyWatcher BlackDimond 150/750 telescope wit...

Astrophotography

I wonder if we should have a thread specifically for the techniques of astrophotography?  Where people can talk about their equipment, strategies for image calibration, software and tutorials. :) I absolutely agree with this! 5777 Did you know you can even detect exoplanets with simple camera equip...

Qr Bbpost Having 0.10 after 0.9 doesn't work

Why it doesn't work? Software versioning system is not the decimal system: the version after 0.9 is not necessarily 1.0, it can perfectly be 0.9.1 or 0.10... It depends on the development.

Qr Bbpost It is most likely to be a major update, but 0.9.9 sounds too close to 1.0 so I don't know what SpaceEngineer is planning to do.

Not necessarily, there can perfectly be a 0.9.10, 0.9.11, and so on.

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

4659 The easiest way to improve the shapes of Magellanic Clouds is to make their textures cubemapped instead of cylindrical mapped. We would need to generate some fake "side views", or borrow them from photos of other irregular galaxies. I've been considering making a mod like that. I wou...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

JackDole , I went there manually. But now that I'm using the object finder, I can see that the central black hole is not in the center of the galaxy. Look: Sin título.png In fact, here you can see the central cluster of the galaxy where I was originally looking for the blackhole: Sin título2.png

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I was investigating some of the farest galaxies in SE and I found the quasar APM08279+5255. I wanted to explore it, so I switched on all procedural features, and when I wanted to go to its core to see the supermassive blackhole, I found that in the center of the central cluster there was nothing! I ...
