Solar Image Processing - Full Disk - 1-4
This is the first four of an eight chapter series of Solar image processing tutorials by Ken Crawford. These are some of the methods I use to produce my solar images using Photoshop CS5. These do not cover stacking or producing the master frames from your raw data. These are meant to provide a good processing foundation that you can build on to produce more dynamic solar images.
