stars and bugs

Tried processing my firefly shots from 3 July. Surprising!

First, in Canon DPP. Stretched the histogram on the highlights side 2.0 units, set the colour temp to 4300°K, bumped the brightness to 1.0, and then minor adjustments to contrast, shadows, etc. Cropped 4:3 but I don't think that did anything. Applied the recipe to all. Batch converted to a small TIF.

Then, in StarStaX. Set the Blend Mode to Gap Filling with Comet Mode off. Stacked over 200 images. Set the Threshold to 9/10 or High and the Amount to 8/9 or More. Saved as JPG.
