The Fireworks Galaxy with SN2017eaw. Sorry for the endless revisions. I believe I got decent data, but I'm having trouble eking out the best from them. Ultimately, I'm pretty convinced that DSS is messing with my color. I think it might finally be time to invest in PixInsight.
Revision B has SN 2017eaw marked and is heavily cropped.
Managed to shoot blue after all!
RGB heavily cropped with the supernova marked.
Fixed color balance, reduced star sizes, slight levels/curves adjustment, more noise reduction around the edge of the galaxy.
Crop of revision E with the supernova marked.
Fixed histogram, adjusted hue saturation.
Crop of revision G with supernova marked.
Last pair of revisions - promise! Fixing some damage to stars in front of the galaxy caused by a sharpening mistake.
Crop of revision I with the supernova marked.
I lied - one last pair of revisions as the galaxy looked a tad too purple and the reds were a bit too saturated.
Crop of revision K with the supernova marked.
I added a super luminance using all subframes - I think it brightened the galaxy and made it a little less noisy.
