North America Nebula (HSO composition). Trying to make most contrast of the original data; however, the most contrast colors appear between purple/cyan in stars, which doesn't imitate the real stars. I believe there is a way to fix that, but I didn't figure it out yet. Any comments are extremely welcome.

Version B is less saturated but richer colors without reducing the green.
