Apod Image processing a very quick timeline.

Here’s some of the many steps for how my newest APOD image was created. Sort of documentary since it appears everyone now fears “fake” pictures. I also included a close up of me in the SUV playing Angry Birds while the shot was taking place. Hey it was cold, windy, 1:30 in the morning  and really damp out 🙂

My final version. A bit darker than the APOD image and therefore the colors saturate more. Also a bit more contrast so the image will print well on aluminum.

    Great shot and processing. When was this taken? Were the 36 images taken with with a pano device? What were the settings for ISO and f stop and seconds? So you did not blend foreground and sky pictures taken separately? I am curious as your technique. Thanks,Karl
