I might try to capture more blue and/or hydrogen alpha data on this.
Reduced star sizes and adjusted the levels a bit to make the background darker.
Tried a different method of luminance layering. NGC 5195 seems less yellow and more blue - I'm not sure why.
I found my missing blue subs as well as a bunch of hydrogen alpha subs! Now it's looking like I hoped it would.
Crop of revision D.
Adjusted the reds a little.
Crop of revision F.
Reduced the amount of Ha in the red channel and tried to fix a minor acquisition error (50% successful).
Trying to fix the reflection error once and for all...
Attempt to repair a minor error in the red channel.
Continuing to reprocess old data. I got a comment recently that this one was too red, which it was.
