Sky at Night Magazine - - PHOTOGRAPHING ORION -

When pro­cess­ing nightscapes, re­duc­ing the noise in the im­age and bring­ing out fore­ground de­tail are the main chal­lenges. As long as you shoot in RAW for­mat, modern im­age- pro­cess­ing soft­ware is well- equipped to han­dle these tasks. In Pho­to­shop or GIMP you can cor­rect the colour bal­ance, and use the ‘Curves’ tool to bring out star fields and im­prove over­all con­trast and def­i­ni­tion.
