My attempts at astro imaging

Get the Pixinsight ‘creamy’ background look

I find a lot of pixinsight images have a night smooth, almost ‘creamy’ background to them – I found out how to create this!

Select the background, open the convolution tool and use that to blur the background slightly…


I may have a went as little too far in the examples below, the effect should be subtle but this is to show the difference it makes, also this is a 100% zoom, it will be less obvious when the image is viewed at normal resolution.
