Well I am one happy bunny tonight.


This is the first image I have using my newly acquired NEQ6.


Ok the focus is a bit soft.


Blobby was at full strength tonight so I was running at ISO 400 to get this.


 


GT 81


Canon 350 D


NEQ6


 


46 - 60 second subs at ISO 400


No Darks or Flats hence the dust bunnies :facepalm::lol: :lol:


 


Stacked in DSS


Very quick lick in PS 6.


 


Wide field.

Cropped.

Hi Graham,


 


Simples:-


 


1. Set clone tool in PS lite / Elements to the same width as the 'bunny' clone from a nice bit of image.


2. Set unsharp mask so that M57 stands out a bit but not outrageously.(if used too much it can look awful)


3. Set levels and stretch the histogram, this clears fog increases contrast and  light levels.


 


Took 5 mins.


 


If you would like a copy of the s\w I have a spare Original disk.


 


Cheers


Damian

Hi Damian

Very kind of you.

Only fly in the ointment with that plan is the imaging / processing computer is not connected to the interweb :facepalm:
