Strategy used for astro picture processing.

How to remember the processing steps done in photoshop? It's done via extending the filename and store each file/processing step on the harddisk

3*5min stack of M1. A SII narrowband filter used.

5*5min stack of M1. A Ha narrowband filter used.

3*5min stack of M1. A OIII narrowband filter used.

A Lum master picture. Consist of Ha, OIII, SII stack content, 33% each.

A Lum(the master 33% each),SII,Ha,OIII color picture done using CCDStack2 and the shown narrow band stack pictures.

The final M1 hubble palette picture shown here after few processing steps done in photoshop.

The photoshop processing steps are shown here, please just look at the file names.

More work done with the picture in photoshop; but again it need more raw data to be a great picture.

Photoshop features that works for me.

Photoshop mandatory actions/filters installed.

Don't forget astra image filters.

Latest trial pictures in picture processing using; MaxIm DL, Adobe Photoshop CS4 and ImagesPLus. Noel Carbonis macros, NeatImage functions, GradientXTerminator filters, Astra Images DDP, deconvolution filters and functions used in APS CS4.

3. marts-13. Decided to document my astrophoto processing technique, tools used are CCDstack2 and Adobe Photoshop CS4. 9 files are used to show this and they are: M1 SII, Ha, OIII stacks (3*5min, 5*5min,3*5min) preprocessed in CCDStack2 and DDP scaled in auto DDP mode, 3 files
. One file, a master Ha,OIII,SII M1 Lum picture that consist of 33% each of above mentioned narrow band stacks and 1 file, a master Lum(the 33% one),SIIHaOIII color picture (Hubble palette used) made in CCDStack2 and DDP scaled in auto and low DDP mode which then is mixed together in photoshop. Few processing steps made in photoshop as the filename picture show. Two additional pictures shown that documents how it's done in photoshop and how the processing steps are remembered also after 3 months using the filename notation method.
