Reprocessing an old image sometimes makes it better: especially when many years are passed.
Here an one of my very first image with a DSLR is presented, taken with an uncorrected ED80 refractor.
The image preprocessing and the original processing was done in IRIS and GIMP, the new peocessing was done totally in PixInsight.

Although the data quality is very poor, the improvement in processing quality is evident in my opinion.

I hope that this will encourage newbies to work, work and work ;-)

Rielaborare una vecchia immagine a volte la rende migliore: soprattutto quando sono passati molti anni e l'esperienza è aumentata.
Ecco una delle mie primissime immagini con una DSLR, scattata con un rifrattore ED80 non corretto.
Il preprocessing delle immagini e l'elaborazione originale è stata fatta in IRIS e GIMP, la nuova elaborazione è stata fatta completamente con PixInsight.

Anche se la qualità dei dati è molto scarsa, il miglioramento della qualità di elaborazione è evidente a mio parere.

Spero che questo incoraggi i neofiti a lavorare, lavorare e lavorare;-)
