ISS041-E-8840b

The video was created from a sequence of 772 images taken aboard the International Space Station recently.

I created the image at top by stacking and processing 52 images from the timelapse sequence and then processing and replacing the foreground.

Images courtesy of the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA Johnson Space Center.

I used DeepSkyStacker to stack the images, I used PixInsight for some heavy noise reduction on the foreground, and then I combined and tweaked everything in Photoshop.

A reprocess of the M83 LRGB data I acquired at IISAC 2014 including some Ha data acquired from Ruchcutters Bay in Sydney.
This is my first image processed using PixInsight and I’m pretty impressed with what it’s allowed me to get from this modest data.

Ha = 13x20min
L = 5 x 10min
R = 10 x 10min
G = 4 x 10min
B = 6 x 10min
