Leveling up my post-processing with StarNet++
The other night I posted an image of Cassiopeia that I banged out very quickly in Sequator and The GIMP. Over the last few nights, I have re-run those images through Astro Pixel Processor as a way of getting better acquainted with that tool and its huge amount of features.… Read the rest

Of course, I have clouds. Some crazy storm system has been marching across our sky for about a week now and is currently dumping flood-inducing rain on a parched Ireland.… Read the rest
