Description

As an amateur astronomer, I am not looking forward Starlink & co. This was supposed to be last week's "meteor" shower.

A7SII, 16-35GM @ 24mm F/4

Skyguider Pro unguided

300 x 30s lights, 300 darks, 300 flats, 300 dark flats.

Stacked separately the "trail" and "no trail" frames in Siril.

Then usual DBE, color balance, gradient extraction, SCNR, autostrech on both stacks.

In PS, substracted the "trail" image to the "no trails" one to isolate the trails. Did a bit of cleaning to remove artefacts.

On the "no trails" image, created a synthetic L starless version with Starnet++, curves, and blended with the original in PS. Added the trails.

Lightroom, some gradient and TSL work.
