Description

Thor's Hamlet, coded NGC 2359, taken with CDK 700mm hosted by iTelescope.com, with one hour of total integration time, processed by PixInsight.

It seems that there're much more stars in red channel than in other channels. Most of the stars appear red when the nebula appears in right color. I tried to use PixMath to fix it, but in vain. The image was obtained by a kind of cheating: I output two images, one with right color for the stars, and the other with the nebula. Then, I use Photoshop to select correct parts through lightness (by lightening mix mode).
