Description: further reduction of starfield using StarNet++ to remove all stars and blended 60/40 with the original

Description: A different processing approach. After initial nonlinear processing and stretching in PixInsight, the stars were removed using StarNet++ by Mikita Misiura (https://sourceforge.net/projects/starnet/). Some manual cleanup of artefacts was done with Photoshop SpotHealing tool. The starless image was then further processed in PixInsight and finally merged with another nonlinear version that was stretched to have a pleasing rendition of the star field. I think this gives a very nice and natural looking overall result. Let me know what you think..
