I thought I'd share a comparison of M31 in a natural/minimal processing view vs. a processed color saturated view.   The colors in the processed image are present (I didn't manually color this, but I did saturate it to intensify the hues).

At the September 2015 Great Lakes Star Gaze,  I did a bit of imaging of the Andromeda galaxy.  

Now that I’ve processed it (ok, that’s an understatement, I processed and reprocessed this quite a few times before I was happy — I’m still learning) here’s my final render of all the data.

Andromeda Galaxy using 8x 8 minute light exposures at ISO 800 with a Canon 60Da through a TeleVue NP101is (f/5.4 quad APO) on a Losmandy G11 mount.   (Plus darks, bias, etc. and a lot of processing.)

See original post for more info.

WOW! If you consider that to be a by-product of "still learning," all the other space photographs I've seen should have been taken by complete beginners.

I did a bit of imaging last night with +Leon Shaner at the Great Lakes Star Gaze (star party). This is just a single image because I haven't had enough time to process the set.

Here M31 (Andromeda Galaxy)

This is an 8 minute exposure at ISO 800 using a Canon 60Da through a TeleVue NP101is (f/5.4 quad APO) on a Losmandy G11 mount.

Thank you for the praise.  I seldom get an opportunity to travel far enough from the city to capture images like this and it's always a thrill when the weather cooperates.  +Mark Stronge & +Shane Sweeney I debated a bit about how much to enhance the galaxy.  Certainly a curves adjustment in photoshop will really help the disk "pop" more.  In the end I decided to leave the disk more to the natural side.  I'm glad you like it.  I did apply a Photoshop "high pass" filter (masked and then brushed on only near the dark dust lanes to make them easier to see.)

+Leon Shaner here's the link to the re-worked version (and this version re-posted for comparison... but I've rotated this image 180º to match the processed image.)

#Pasta #Fettuccine My friend Dean Cicala (Chef / Owner of Bistro 222 in Dearborn, MI) wanted some images of pasta. Who doesn't love pasta?

Taken with Canon 5D III, EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro USM, Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT, two Sppedlite 600EX-RT strobes, Lastolite EzyBox Speedlite softboxes.

Amateur Astronomer, Planetarium Presenter, & Photographer
Introduction
In my non-professional life, I'm an avid amateur astronomer and member of the Ford Amateur Astronomy Club in Michigan.  I also enjoy astronomy outreach.  I am also a planetarium operator & presenter for the Hammond Planetarium at Henry Ford Community College and participate in other outreach events as they arise.

I'm also a photographer, having worked in the photography industry in my younger years but now only shoot for personal enjoyment.
