M67.  Only two hours of data here.  Mostly processed in CCD stack with some final touches in Photoshop.  I'm getting some background banding I can't get rid of, and I'm going to try reprocessing it in PI one of these days.

That looks pretty good, +Stuart Forman. I really like  the star colors. I have no clue how to remove that, but if you ever find a way to fix it please share the newfound secret.

Beginners  - 
 
I'm putting this into the beginners forum because I took this two years ago with and my old camera, and this is my very first attempt at HDR processing with layer masks in Photoshop.  

This was taken with a Canon T1i modded by Gary Honis.  
5 second, 60 sec, and 240 second subs
Stacked in CCD Stack, processed in CS5.

One of these days I'll get around to learning Pixinsight.

Kepler's New Universe

Here's a new documentary from the folks at +Deep Astronomy about the amazing discoveries made by NASA's Kepler Mission. Thanks to Kepler, we now know that our galaxy is teeming with Earth-sized worlds, which makes the search for life even more tantalizing. 

Great work +Tony Darnell and +Scott Lewis
