Hello everyone,

I am new to astrophotography and certainly new to APP. Here is my first attempt at both -- the region around Sadr. Taken with a WO Redcat and a Star Adventurer. 30 exposures of 90 seconds each is all I could manage without getting any star trailing. I have simply followed steps in a tutorial about the basics...Much appreciate any guidance on how to improve the image. 

Many thanks. 

Suparno

That’s a stunning image. Apart from suppressing blue a bit in the background and making the red of the nebula a bit redder I’d say it is perfect. Well done!

Yep that looks very good, especially for a beginner! Did you try tools like "light pollution correction"? That might make the image a bit nicer balanced.

Hi Vincent, Wouter,

Many thanks! I’ll try the light pollution correction tool as well as boosting some of the colors as you have suggested. Lots to learn!

Don't hesitate to ask if anything isn't clear!

Bravo - Yes I'm new too - I stack then I use tools and use  LP removal. Make some boxes in the areas (black sky) stay away from nebula and it will enhance a great deal. Else if you have photoshop you can just saturation and levels too. I perked it up some.  AMAZING first image.
