Les vacances se terminent 😉 sur cette belle Ile de l'Océan Indien!

Voici la dernière image saisie il y a quelques jours.

Le traitement n'a pas été facile, l'objectif utilisé avait beaucoup de défauts.

Malgré tout, cela reste un excellent souvenir👌de l'hémisphère sud que je partage avec vous!

Bon ciel à tous et prenez bien soin de vous

5 novembre 2020 : Reprise des traitement linéaire et non-linéaire sous PixInsight pour mieux faire ressortir le nuage entourant cette galaxie, ainsi que toutes les nébuleuses proches. Reste à diminuer le nombre d'étoiles visibles, et à réduire les autres 😂

N'hésitez pas à apporter vos critiques et conseils.

Bon cieux à tous

Holidays ended 😉 on this beautiful island in the Indian Ocean!

Here is the last image taken a few days ago.

The processing was not easy, the lens used had many flaws.

Despite everything, it remains an excellent souvenir
👌 that I share with you!

Clear Skies to everyone and take care of yourself


November 5, 2020 : Try new linear and non-linear processing under PixInsight to better highlight the cloud surrounding this galaxy, as well as all nearby nebulae. It remains to reduce the number of visible stars, and to reduce the size of the others 😂

Do not hesitate to bring your criticisms and advice.

Clear sky to everyone
