Does Nebulb work for processing deep space objects?

Nebulb is a software specially designed for landscape astrophotography, taking into account both the type of equipment usually used by night photographers (short/medium focal length lenses and unmodified cameras), as well as the main types of pictures usually taken in this discipline (Milky Way, star trails and meteor showers).

That said, it is true that Nebulb can also be used to process deep space images (nebulae, galaxies…).

Obviously it does not have the tools that other software specialized in this type of photography have, nor does it allow to obtain the same results, but being a stacking software (which automatically detects and aligns the stars in all the images) and thanks to the light pollution reduction module (which allows to greatly reduce the light gradients of the sky, bringing out all the information underneath) it is possible to obtain very surprising results in a really simple way.

Here are a couple of examples of such images processed only with Nebulb:

Andromeda Galaxy (M31), next to which can also be seen the galaxies M110 and M32

One of 113 30-second RAW images captured during 1 hour (with a regular Nikon D810, a 500 mm lens and an equatorial mount)

Lagoon and Trifid Nebulae in the Galactic Center of the Milky Way Galaxy

One of 85 30-second RAW images captured over 45 minutes (with a regular Nikon D810, a 500 mm lens and an equatorial mount)
