Description

First light with my 183mm Pro on the Edge. Its very oversampled at 0.21"/px, but I'm pretty stoked at the details I was able to bring out. This is going to be a super fun setup for galaxy season!

I

Description: Processed the grainy BG to smooth it out. Interestingly, I don't think it was noisy so much as unresolved texture in the galaxy. For the sake of a pretty picture, I killed it for now until I can add more data.... if I add more data. :-)

Description: OK, Can't let this go. This time, no NR. I'm not used to imaging at this pixel scale, so I think I am being confused with noise. I think much of the granular structure is not actually noise, but rather stars and/or clusters in the galaxy that have not resolved yet due to limited integration time. So, even though it looks grainy, I think this is right. I also worked on the color balance. This one is at full resolution without downsampling.
