It was the first time I used the High Pass filter in PS, I think I overdid it a little.

Hi Jakesan,

I'm just a tourist here (I use Canon 5D II and a Panasonic FZ200 for astro photography), but I have used the High Pass filter a lot. The filter technique is best suited for large sensor cameras, but you might try stacking 10-20 images in PS, and then use High Pass filter. For small sensor cameras I always use very carefull adjustment in contrast by hand (negative mask and brush).

Here is a picture of the Andromeda Galaxy done with FZ200, 25 images, and very carefully use of High Pass, in combination with masks. Do it in stages, not all at once

Free your mind, and your camera will follow...
