The Elephant Trunk Nebula in Hubble palette by Mabula Haverkamp. Takahashi TSA102 @ F/5.6 on an Avalon Linear mount using an asi1600mmc with Astrodon 3nm Ha, SII, OIII filters. Data processed 100% in APP using the soon to be released version 1.083 which will include... a new Star Reducer Tool.
Color stars calibration
Encounter of difficulties in calibrating the color of the stars. I can not understand from time to time how to adjust.
I have to add more hours, but gradually I like to see how the photo evolves.
Is this broadband data, it looks more like you used a narrow-band filter is that correct? If so, you can't really calibrate using the star color tool. That requires broadband data.
Sorry I had not seen the update of the post. But I never quite understand how to fix colors.
I use the L-Enhance filter
So it's clear to you now or do you still need further assistance, happy to help..
For narrow-band data, it's not possible to perform color calibration automatically. This is because APP uses the broadband data belonging to stars in their main phase of life. So you would need similar broadband data for it to work. Narrow band data is more down to the photographer on how to show this. You can use the real look of H-alpha for instance which is more pink, but many prefer red for instance.
Ok thanks 🙂
