The majority of the presets apply subtle adjustments without over-editing the images and to maintain a natural look. All presets are meant as a starting point for further fine-tuning your images.

The focus of the presets is to carefully work out the beautiful details of the Milky Way and emphasizing the stars and galaxies on the night sky. All presets have been tested with 100+ images from different camera models to ensure the most universal use possible. They are also a great addition to my Signature Lightroom presets.

☑️ The presets are also ideal for editing images of Northern Lights, as the colors are largely preserved and the contrast is noticeably improved.

🆘 Please keep in mind that you still need to adjust the basic settings of each image. In particular, you’ll need to adjust the white balance (→ Adjusting White balance for Astrophotography) and exposure in the Basic panel of Lightroom.
