Description

Here is NGC 1365, one of the Southern sky’s galactic masterpieces. It is commonly known as the Great Barred Spiral Galaxy.

In my processing I use a combination of PixInsight and Affinity Photo. I feel that Affinity Photo is the best kept secret of serious photographers: a cost effective and elegant alternative to Photoshop.
