Follow along with Sky & Telescope’s imaging editor Sean Walker in these three great webinars. In Planetary Imaging, watch as Sean walks you through his usual processing routines to produce sharp, high-resolution images of the Moon and planets. Sean demonstrates the basics of frame stacking in RegiStax 6, as well as advanced techniques for sharpening and deconvolution using MaxIm DL and Adobe Photoshop you can use to make your images stand out from the crowd.
And in De-rotation with WinJUPOS, Sean demonstrates the three primary techniques used to combine long series of still images or video frames captured through color and monochrome cameras, resulting in highly-detailed photos of the major planets.
Processing your images of galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters shouldn’t be a daunting task. In Processing Deep Sky Images, follow along with Sky & Telescope’s Imaging Editor Sean Walker as he shows you how to get the most out of your images to produce astrophotos worthy of publication in the magazine. Sean demonstrates the basic techniques of image calibration and color combining using the popular programs Maxim DL and CCDStack, with additional advanced processes such as adding hydrogen-alpha data to your nebula and galaxy images, or enhancing your RGB images with luminance data using Adobe Photoshop.
