Post processing in Astrophotography - comparing images
I am a novice when it comes to driving advanced post-processing tools like Siril, which, if you are getting into astrophotography, I highly recommend.
It does have a steep learning curve, especially the post-stack processing side. Powerful, but not intuitive.
But if you want quick results from your funky new smart telescope, you do have alternatives.
So let's have a look at some solar photography and see what happens.
Here is a untouched image, and the same image with some in-camera curve adjustment. The only edit is to crop the image.
