Description

A wider field shot of the Western Veil Nebula. I am practicing the PixInsight TGV Denoise tutorial by LightVortex Astronomy (http://lightvortexastronomy.blogspot.com/2014/04/tutorial-post-processing-technique.html)

I am also trying to better utilize masks, especially with the Range Selection tool.
