Hi, I'm 16yo I'm french and this week I took my first pictures with my skywatcher 200/800 in an exceptional sky (like bortle 1) !|
I'm very happy it was amazing but I don't really know how to process this kind of nebula.
here is the result of hours of processing… I don't know if the colors are too exaggered, and if the background is enough dark.
I accept any critics
Skywatcher Quattro 200P on HEQ-5 Pro Goto
Imaging with a Canon 700Da
Guiding with a TS-Optics 60/240 and an ASI 120MM Mini
69 x 240s (4h36)
Stacking with Siril
Processed with Photoshop

in my opinion, your processing is really good. Especially considering the fact, that you are a beginner - amazing!
The background is just right and you hit the colours spot on - which is quite hard with this object.
The picture is not overprocessed and looks very natural. You should keep this style!

Stefan MuckenhuberThanks Stefan ! It's encouraging

I seriously doubt that Max is a beginner
Very good collimation on the scope, an astromodified DSLR, good autoguiding…
For processing: the dust below the horsehead lacks color. I would try to enhance this brown dust more, especially when you have such a deep integration.

Your image is already very good and the only thing I would try to change is to get rid of the second (teal blue) ring around Alnitak and from rest of the brightest stars. I know that Alnitak is a beast, but probably with some photoshop-fu you could either desaturate or change its hue to match its color to the rest of the star's glow color.
As a second note, I would like to see more of the dust which exists in the lower parts of the image. I think your data supports this (mind that I am biased towards dusty things )

|Hi victor, thank you for your answer ! I have this telescope since 3 months but I've never tried this kind of nebula and I've never integrated so much data so it's new for me… I will try to enhance the dust like you said, thanks|

Die Launische DivaThanks for the answer, you're right Alnitak is a spotlight x) I will enhance the dust and try to erase the blue ring around the stars, thank you !
