Hybrid Workflow Masterclass: A Novel Approach to Narrowband Processing

Nik Szymanek, a UK-based astro-imager and deep sky image processing tutor, is no stranger to pushing the boundaries of astrophotography. With years of experience and a passion for exploring the cosmos through the lens of advanced imaging techniques, Nik has developed a novel approach that promises to add a new dimension to your astrophotography projects.

In this upcoming webinar, Nik will unveil his innovative method of using SII (Sulfur II) data as a luminance layer for narrowband images. This technique, best suited for celestial objects with strong SII emissions, offers a fresh perspective on the night sky's wonders, revealing unprecedented depth and detail.

Recommended Comments

I used this technique for the Trapezium Telescope Live data for my APOD image. I wanted to try it from my Bortle 7-8 backyard. The Sii data really cuts through the glare like sunglasses. I also incorporated Sii as luminance into my RGB data, works like a magic bullet.
