Pleiades with budget rig.
Excellent, it probably can even be lower budget. 🙂 I would stretch the image a bit btw, to get more detail out of the background.
@vincent-mod Agree! But the moon had affected lower part of picture and this would then be more pronounced. I must start looking into layers and selective editing.
This is before editing in Polarr Pro. I'm afraid I need more data to get more detail.
Yes that always helps, but I think there you already see a bit more detail. The background can be up a little as well, so that it evens out a bit better maybe.
Based on your suggestions, I gave Pleiades another go in Polarr Pro. Seeing slight violet at the edge of the nebulosity I went for "curves" and pulled slightly on lower red and tuned also the blue. Since star colors still seems within reason, I think it still is realistic?
Well, what is realistic.. 🙂 But your first attempt is closer to the "realistic" color of the nebula.
WOW. Nice Shot. If you think this is a budget rig, I have to show you my definition of a budget rig.
A guy feeling very cheap now.... 😉
