Noel Carboni put some old Canon 5D MkII (unmodified) data through his new AstroFlat plug-in.  I am amazed at the amount of “red” he has managed to pull out from an unmodified DSLR camera!!

You will see in the images below that I have been beta-testing Noel Carboni’s new flattening tool for deep-sky images.

This plug-in makes flattening even the most difficult image data a doddle (even I can get good results).

If you carry out deep-sky image processing, then you must have this tool in your digital darkroom toolbox – it’s sharp!

Struve’s Lost Nebula, Burnham’s Nebula, Hind’s Variable Nebula, NGC 1555 – they are all the same object and it is in the centre of this image.

65 x 20-minute subs (almost 22 hours) went into this one using the Sky 90 array at the New Forest Observatory.

A rather oddly-framed 4-framer using the Sky 90 array of the Merak region.

Sometimes it is good when someone else has a look at one of your images as they can immediately point out stuff which you miss (because you’ve been looking at the thing too long).

Bud Guinn immediately saw some errors with the 2-frame 200mm lens Double Cluster panorama which I hope I have rectified in the version below.
