    Default My first crack at Andromeda



    I’m fairly happy with this. Star color is non existent because of my lack of editing skills. I had to get creative with the lasso tool, levels/color mixing and then Gaussian blurring but all in all I’m happy for my first go round.

    5hrs red
    3hrs green
    3hrs blue

    Shot from a white zone in central Tampa with 40-60% moon.
