Eastern Veil Revisited

I was telling Clayton, my astronomy pal over at Clayton's Wanderlust for Stardust, about the difficulties that I was having in processing my recent image of the Eastern Veil Nebula. He asked if he could try working with them in PixInsight and Photoshop. The results are amazing!

The colors of the nebula and the stars are more vivid, and the detail is sharper. These images were produced with the same set of data in my previous post!

This has convinced me that there is yet more that I can extract from my modest equipment. I'm looking forward to learning some new image processing techniques!
