The Lagoon Nebula Captured with SLOOH Telescope

Here’s another astrophoto attempt.  I took this “snapshot” through one of the SLOOH.com telescopes last night and have been playing around with processing off and on throughout the day.  I’m going to keep experimenting, but so far, I’ve gotten the best results by using Topaz Labs software, primarily Topaz Adjust and Topaz Detail, blending those layers using the Linear Dodge Blending Mode in Photoshop, further adjustments in Lightroom and the Nik Software suite of programs (primairly Viveza).

I have a few more that I’m going to work on – probably the next one will be a galaxy.  We’ll see how that goes.  When I get my system in place, I hope to write an article about it, along with SLOOH.com.
