    Very nice Orion!
    Processing does bring in a lot more detail, and its great it still looks natural. Did you also try to process it the same way?

    I only have Gimp and photoshop elements which arent quite in the same league as Cs5 but I had a go. Not as good but better than my first attempts, but I guess its like everything else, practice, learn and improve.

    Of course,
    The mount was unguided so I had to keep it short to prevent star trails,
    18 x 30 seconds, with the best 80% processed, the total time was 6 1/2 minutes. I couldnt find a camera profile for my Atik 16ic-s colour camera on dss so had to compromise and use one for a logitech camera. Its possible it could be better but equally a whole lot worse so I wont tempt fate and leave the profile as it is.
