Description


StarTools- Synthetic Luminescence + LRGB Combine - Awesome stars and dark nebula detail. Awful pink color and the reflection nebula completely gone.

NBRGBCombination - Ok stars and nice red color. Dark nebulas are hard to spot.

SHO-AIP - Better contrast on dark nebula. Still nice red color. Crazy looking stars.

StarTools - Synthetic Luminescence + Color Transfer Method - Nice stars and dark nebula detail. Color not quite as pink. Reflection nebula still missing.

NBRGBCombination - but using the synthetic luminance for ha.
