Good Morning,

I'm doing some Milky Way imaging while the season is still in. Was wondering which Algorithm to use for this type of image, in the RAW/FITS Tab..? First time doing this with APP.

Any other tips I may need to know, while I'm asking...

 

Thanks,

Rodney

Same as for any other astro-image, it's the registration where things get different etc.

The Registration will not affect the image though, correct? That's all I'm concerned with.

In what way do you mean? It will yes, in the sense that it has to project the milky way in some way that works.

In the overall quality of the image, Grain, sky etc. This type image seems to be having background issues. Not a good even black sky, but spotted dark and gray blotched for some reason. I was in a Bortle Class 4 last night

Oh like that, well that's just what the data has in it then. To correct for some of that you'd need good use of the Light Pollution correction tool etc. But if the data has a lot of that, that's going to be tricky. APP itself won't degrade the image.

The LP feature knocked a lot of it out. I'm using PS to try and even the color and smooth things out, without subduing my image.

Okay, I'll play with it some more! Thanks for the comeback!
