APOD

Astronomy Picture of the Day

My Image of the "Pac man Nebula", NGC281, was selected as an "Astronomy Picture of the Day" by the NASA.
You can see the NASA page here: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap110825.html

This was my Fourth APOD, previous ones can be seen here:

Hi J-P,

Congrats on the APOD. I've loved your work on this, and so many other, images. I'm particularly intrigued by your narrowband approach to 'true color.' You recently commented on a 'new improved' technique and indicated that you hoped to post an expanded tutorial. I've been hoping to follow your lead.... My system, a Tak FSQ-106 w/QSI-583, is waiting on a new mount: a new Paramount MX, should be here "any day").

Again, Congrats. Looking forward to your work, once you get night again!

Cheers,

Steve W

Hi Steve,

Thanks!

The "natural" color composition is originally published by Richard Crisp,

I wrote a small study about the color chemes used in my images:

I'm very sorry about the delay with the tutorial for "Tone mapping v2.0"
This is a only documentation so far (at end of the page):

We'll have astronomical darkness after the first week of September.
