8890 looks like a telescope hubble ones! Nah! The first thing I did after seeing the result was checking the professional ones and the difference is quite noticeable. But I still can't believe that I managed to pull those up! 8892 Great images! 8897 Quite impressive Thank you! It's good to know tha...

Astrophotography

So, I finally had the opportunity to go away from Madrid's light pollution into Alicante, and managed to get this pictures. I processed all three with PixInsight, and I can't believe how different they are from those with all that city light. I hope you like them too: http://forum.spaceengine.org/do...

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...

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-...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...
