This image was processed entirely in Images
Plus 6.0. Calibration
done in Images Plus without darks using the hot /cold
pixel correction capability of the software. The image was then stacked
twice, once using a median combine stacked on the comet and the second
time using the standard auto processing with a median combine. The
first stack suppresses the stars and the second the comet. Next, the
comet only image was stretched using a digital development processing
and multi scale decomposition was used to bring out the core detail.
The feature mask was
used to completely remove the comet from the star image. Finally
the two images were recombined using a lighten blend mode with the star
layer on the top of the stack.
