Processing Orion

Astro processing software / image manipulation is a rabbit hole I don’t think I want to fall down. But, as I have a propensity for suffering – I am giving PixInsight a test drive. Mostly fumbling around in the dark, much like I do with the camera. From the looks of many of the tutorials I’d have to spend several late nights a week for several months to scratch the surface.

Fumlbing around with PixInsight stacking Orion Images

This image is 44 separate raw files calibrated (I think) and registered (I think) then combined into 1 composite (see the ridge and lake images blurred as the stack was aligned and calibrated). I then brought the file back into Lightroom to adjust the brightness, contrast, etc.
