How to Post Process the Night Sky in Lightroom

Creator and editor of Lonely Speck, pro night sky photographer Ian Norman is back with another great tutorial. Being nothing short of passionate when it comes to astrophotography Ian always seems eager to share what he has learned over the years. In his latest video Ian gives us the rundown on how he post processes Milky Way photos in Lightroom.

In this short tutorial, I show you my basic method for editing Milky Way photos in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. See the full written tutorial.

Great information, plus he uses Lightroom and for me, that's a big plus for someone who hasn't worked with Photoshop.

Thanks, Ian -- an excellent and timely (for me) tutorial.

Norman is pretty cool at sharing info to get your astro shots looking good. I don't personally agree with his LR workflow, he was working against himself a lot, but if you have no knowledge of LR I suppose it's handy. His image stacking video is very useful.
