First session of the year

Post by DJD » Sat Feb 23, 2019 12:44 pm

Well , back after a lengthy lay-off but glad to be imaging again.
I barely remembered what to do but managed one image from a late morning session.
Quite a bit of high cloud drifting . I had to use a much more contrasty gamma than usual - I hope it was the conditions.
I may have been too agressive with the processing ( out of practice ).
Anyone know why rubber bands perish with age ? All the bands I use on the scope have failed
since the last time I was in the obsy.
Anyway hope everyone gets to enjoy a bit of weekend sun.
Best wishes,
David

That's a brilliant shot David! I was imaging the same region this morning.

Nice image David.

Living vicariously through you all.

Glad you are back to imaging again, that is a cracking shot with loads of details :bow the high haze was a bit of a pain at the weekend.
