  • People do battle with light pollution in various ways including filters for the lens, but I am not enough of an expert on this to provide much guidance.  Spend a few hours in the Astrophotography ...
  • I have not heard of a program specifically designed to do what you are trying to do, but you could do it with any pixel (i.e layers based) editing program, such as Photoshop (the industry ...
  • The issue of White Balance, or what color are astronomical objects is subject to fierce debate.  Read the Astrophotography forum on DPR if you want to read the arguments.   The problem is that the ...
  • A reflective sphere is a challenge to photograph.  You could try the Highlight slider in the Develop module of LR, but those highlights might be totally saturated so you might have to use the spot ...

  • Because your screen is emitting light rather than reflecting ambient light I would think the only issue is to prevent reflections of your light source on your screen and keeping the ambient low ...
  • DxO can work as a plug-in from Lightroom, I don't know if other editors can also do that.  I think if you call up DxO from within Lightroom, the changes will get recorded in LR catalog.
  • It seems if you don't keep both the photos and the catalog on some media that you can switch between the computers you will end up having to do a bunch of confusing importing and exporting ...
  • One theory is that if you want the monitor to be bigger just sit closer to it. :-) But seriously, any laptop will be a compromise between screen size and portability.  I chose portability.  ...
