tried quick processing (Etobicoke)

A quick processing job from one of the test shots of comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy)... Found the comet where it was supposed to be, just below ν and 40 Tauri.

Canon 40D, 18-55mm at 18, f/5.0, 15 seconds, ISO 1000, shot daylight white balance, tripod-mounted, computer controlled.

In DPP, changed the white balance to tungsten, added a touch of orange, increased contrast, dropped shadow, increased sharpness, stretched slightly.

No darks applied.


I like the doubles θ 1 and 2 and σ 1 and 2 in the Hyades (aka Caldwell 41)...
