    • The Iris Nebula
      I haven't seen to many of this one so I thought I'd give it a try.
      12 x 600 and 4 x 300 with darks flats and bias frames but only used the bias frames to create the master flat.
      Stacked in DSS and processed in Star Tool finished in CS2 final noise reduction was done in Topaz Studio using the noise reduction plug in (which I will buy after the free trial runs out as it is fantastic). 
      I hope y'all enjoy as usual all comments greatly received.
