    Default Ngc 2467



    This was a tough one for me. I shot a mere half hour just to see where I might go in the future with this one.

    The star field is so dense that it's hard to pick out the nebula. Anyway, here is a comparison between the image before attempting to isolate the nebula and the my final image.

    6 x 240s AT80 on AVX w/Fuji X-A1 (3200iso) -- using darks-flats-bias

    Before isolating:

    NGC2467 15NOV17 6x240s F32 M102 jhz ST raw.jpg

    After isolating:

    NGC2467 15NOV17 6x240s F32 M102 jhz ST comp.jpg

    Still struggling with isolating properly. The contrast between the edges of the nebula and the rest seems too abrupt.

    Clears,
    Joe

    The difference in the two images is stunning. It looks like a great job of pulling out the nebula to me!

    Hi Joe. If you used the Life Module with the isolate pre-set for this then you can dial back the effect from the default 100% to say 50% or whatever works for a smooth transition.

    Great job pulling out the nebula. What a difference between the two images! It is encouraging to see what can be done with StarTools. I am still just doing very basic processing, but will get there some day.

    Clear skies.
