Description

Here is a first light on the galaxy of the Edge aka NGC 4565 : one of two series of subs I just did tonight ;

The 96% bright Moon kept low (under 20° above the horizon) and somehow, I managed to get rid of most of the gradiants (did I?) and get nice contrast, more than I expected really.

> VERSION A : 30 x 75sec @ 2500iso

> VERSION C : 30x75 + 24x60 @ 2500iso : separately processed, then merged together with a final pass...

> VERSION E : in the same spirit as my last editing on M106, after a little de-centering crop, using many layers, I tried to gain color, contrast and still keep it "credible"...

> VERSION F : forget E version, it's overcooked. Back to more subtle treatments :-) That's it till acquisition of some Ha and more lum'
