This was an abandoned project - the data was very flawed and I gave up trying to make it work. However, I've been without my mount for nearly a month, so I decided to come back to it and see if anything was worth salvaging. The jury is still out.
I was able to mix the hydrogen alpha in better, sharpen it slightly better and get the color balance better. It's a tad noisier, but I can live with that.
I did a little more noise reduction and gave the stars some more color.
Decreased hue saturation.
Reduced star sizes. Okay, I think this my last revision!
