Description

Trying to get more from less data, this is a short series of exposures, trying to get what colour and most significantly variance of colour I can get. Still disappointed with the result, this is still progress. RGB=4x300s + 8x300s Luminance.

Reduction in MaximDL, Registering & DBE in PixInsight, Combine with sigma rejection in CCDStack. Colour balance in CCDStack then Photoshop, all in RGB.
