Description

I was fortunate to have a few very clear and relatively dark hours the other night. I am starting to get the hang of PixInsight, and one of the things I am really struggling with is getting accurate star color when shooting with my Astronomik light pollution filter. I live in a yellow zone, so the filter is a must when shooting emission nebulae. I did a decent job in this image, but still have more to learn. C&C welcome.
