                                            The Helix nebula processed in 2 ways:

                                   On the Left, LRGB with a little Ha enhancement.

                                          On the Right, S2-Ha-O3 Mapped as RGB

                                  In Both images the stars are natural colored RGB

Dark doodad mosaic small 3 corrected.jpg

                                 This is a six (6) panel mosaic taken over 3 years!!!

     With careful image processing you can't see the transitions between the frames

                Many images and examples can be seen here:

With the skills you will learn - terrestrial pictures can also benefit...

in these examples - On the Right - the original outcome from the camera (Iphone 6)

                                  - On the Left    - After image processing
