Reworked Comet Holms Picture


I posted a picture of comet Holmes and the California nebula back on March 10. I've played around with that picture a bunch more since then, while the moon was bright during the non-stargazing part of the month.
I've come up with another rendition of that picture that I like better.
But I'm not completely satisfied yet, so I'll continue to experiment with that picture as I learn more about astro-photo processing.

The star at the lower left corner of the image has a fuzzy area by it. It is IC348 and shows up well on this renditionof the picture.
The moon is gone from the evening sky now, but we haven't been out observing yet. Maybe this weekend.
