Description

10 hrs of data taken with Skywatcher Esprit 100 and a Nikon D800. I was hoping to get out even more dust surrounding M45, but i guess i might have to add a couple of hours.
I boosted the star colors using luminosity masks in photoshop, but this leads to artefacts. I guess there is a more elegant, approach using Pixinsight and Starmasks.
Rev. B: Changed Blackpoint and shift tint slightly towards red.
Rev. C: Changed the color balance and went easier on stretching the histogram :)
