Description

Same process as the last images : for the Light , I selected 50% of the best Fwhm subs and combined them with all the subs to get sharper details and smaller stars

A difficult Galaxy to render properly because of high density light at its center: You have to process carefully the RGB and also the Light no to loose all the colors and get brown result ....

3 nights were necessary to get the subs: 31 of march and 07/08, 05 of april

Red 30 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Blue 30 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Green 40 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Light 60subs@180s -20°C, gain zero
