Creating Deep and Detailed Images from Professional and Amateur Data Sources
Ever wondered how the famous Hubble Images are made, or what it takes to create such beautiful, deep views on your own? Oliver's workshop will cover all the way from Raw to Awe, starting with a general overview on the topic, and showing you the advantages and possibilities of working with professional scientific data. While having a closer look at astronomical archives and portals like the Digitized Sky Survey or the Hubble Legacy Archive, we will learn how to mine them, how the data is organized and how to choose objects of interest with appropriate data sets available. The right set of tools for data registration, reduction and preparation will also be an important topic to discuss, as well as strategies and techniques on image assembling. Having our data sets ready, we will move our focus on combining the images as well as the processing workflow itself. We will learn how to create so called hybrid images, unique constructions assembled from various sources like Hubble or large ground based scopes, and we will even try to include your own amateur data as well! To top it off, Oliver's workshop will also offer a lot of processing tips like color mapping or star handling.

Narrowband Image Processing
This workshop discusses narrowband image processing using the clipping layer mask method in Photoshop starting with master narrowband frames. It covers the Hubble Color Palette using H-a, OIII and SII narrowband filters as well as natural color using just H-a and OIII filters. Sharpening techniques, star repair and blending in the natural color of stars using RGB data will be discussed.
