Description

NGC 3628 Luminance Data

Shot this with an F/7 Focal Reducer instead of at F/10 to try to speed up completion of imaging project. Four hours of data. Still have not mastered color balancing so focusing on luminance. Deconvolution applied here really pulled the detail.

Thanks to Tolga and Mr. Keller for helping me with some technical info on getting the correct balance between sub length and number of subs.

Description: The revised version here has ACDNR noise reduction applied. I am still fairly new at image processing. The noise reduction really smoothed out the background.
