Description

When doing astrophotography, the first part is collecting the raw images (data) and the second part is processing the data. Processing images takes while before you become adequate and is always evolving. This documents my current flow using PixInsight and finishing off with Photoshop. All data was collected using AstroPhotography Tool (APT) using the ZWO ASI1600 MM camera.

Below is a link to a table which has them in processing order.

These tutorial videos were designed for someone who is thinking about using PixInsight or just beginning, if you are an expert - try not to laugh. The videos are housed on YouTube under my AstroQuest1 channel.

The image is very similar to my original image from last month just a couple of small differences if you look closely.
