M51 Processing – Photoshop

03 Apr 2016 - No Comments - by Amit Kamble

This is a short video of M51 processing. A friend of mine “Rahul Ramtekar” from Dhruva Skywatchers Association asked me to process this beautiful image of M51 galaxy shot from a Dobsonian telescope.

I did not have DSS so this set of image was stacked in PixInsight, but any stacking software will do.

The image was taken by Rahul Ramtekar of Dhruva Skywatchers Group – Nagpur, while observing through the 10″ Go-To Dob at Sillari, Pench with Pravin Jat.

I am a web and software developer by day and an astrophotographer at night. Because of the nature of my day job, the only times I get to drive out to beautiful locations in on weekends. So, always try to make the best of a weekend.
