Description

I have been working very hard to refine my process workflow. I have taught myself a new technique that involves separating RGB from the FITs file using Nebulosity, Streching using FITs Liberator, Remove the stars using Straton, process the nebula and the stars separate, and recombine them for a final image. This is my first one i am posting. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking,

Clear Skies!!!
