    NP Declan. Are you sure MU is not available? I just tried and it's okay for me. You have to insert the code and click download, then wait 45 seconds and click regular download, black button. the download only took me 1 min with MU, while it took a lot for the other link.

    I already had posted three post-processing images that I did on your unprocessed version of M51 in the thread to which you're referring. But they appear to have been removed, and since it's your work, I didn't save any copies. It took me a considerable amount of time to process those images, and I don't particular like repeating a task that I've already done. So, I must decline your challenge.

    As far as the FITS, my version of Photoshop is too old for the FITS liberator plug-in and I can't upgrade it. And besides, I don't use Photoshop anymore now that I have GIMP. So, this is one challenge I am going to take a pass on.

    I also noticed your images are not there anymore...
    i thought it was only me...

    Maybe this plugin will enable FITS on GIMP if you're interested.
    Download UFRaw from SourceForge.net

    I haven't used it nor seen it so I can't comment.

    OK Leo.
    Every thing is working properly now.
    This liberator looks very interesting at first sight...I have to say.
    I will be using this quite a bit I feel.
    Thanks again for your assistance on this one.

    There, it's gone again, back to you!
    whatever it is, I don't want it, it's yours. I should post less...

    P.S.

    I don't think this will work. This is for the RAW imaging format, which I already have on all of my graphic manipulation software.

    FITS are used by professional astronomers who use an entirely different platform that is far more sophisticated than either a Windows or MacOS platform. FITS are the most comprehensive and sophisticated imaging format in existence and contain far more data than any other imaging format. And in its pristine form, it is not compatible with any graphic software designed for a Windows or MacOS platform. That's why you need the FITS liberator to make it compatible with Photoshop. But only with versions of Photoshop 6.0 (I think it's version 6.0) or higher can you donwload the FITS liberator.

    But, I appreciate the thought.

    I should never have posted this. I never thought it would cause such a hassle : )

    Certianly there must be some way for us to reliably share, in a format that is accessible to all of us, raw data to practise processing skills on. Uploading a converted jpg or bmp, etc to a file uploading service doesn't reliably contain all the data of the original image. So, it has to be in FITS or RAW (CR2 or similiar) original data.

    I believe my 450D saves in CR2 which once aligned and stacked, is saved as FITS ( I am pretty certain both DSS and Nebulosity save it as such).
