first LRGB job

Completed my first ever LRGB job. NGC 2022. North is down; east is left.

simulated LRGB photograph of planetary nebula NGC 2022

Luminance 25 seconds, red 39s, green 60, blue 120.

Pre-processing and conversion in FITS Liberator 3.0.1. LRGB assembly, manual alignment, levels, curves, saturation, and Gaussian blur in Photoshop CS2. And, once again, I used a synthetic blue layer.

Too red. Too much colour, in general. And a big gradient to smooth out...
