NGC 7331, Stephans Quintet & numerous others
- I acquired this one several nights ago. While not as breathe taking as some
of the large Nebula's I've been acquiring at f/2 it is of interest to me on
trying to push the scope to smaller and dimmer objects at this fl.
I would like to note that I paid more attention to star color on this one.
While the star themselves is real data collected I did manipulate the colors
to try and create a balance of reddish orange, blue and white stars to try
and make the image more appealing. They in no way represent the stars true
color. If left unchanged the stars themselves in the image appear almost
colorless. Adjusting the saturation and/or using "Match Color" did little
to increase star color so I resorted to "Color Balance".
Enjoy counting the faint fuzzies. I apologize for not having (yet, I may
end up upgrading flickr to pro) a way of showing the entire image. This
would make the counting easier and more fun ;)
I've included two links. One for the entire FOV and a cropped version with
NGC 7331 at center at 100%.
