My data looks okay, but I'm having a particularly difficult time processing - I'm thinking my light pollution is causing havoc.
Mostly just added a "super luminance" layer constructed from all LRGB subframes.
Looks like I caught SN 2017dfc in my data! Here's a close-up inversion to show it more clearly.
Inspired by today's APOD from the HST and Suburu Telescope, I decided to give my M63 another look and found it... very colorless. I made some modifications to selective color, cropped it tighter and added a little more noise reduction.
One final adjustment - the outer 'nebulosity' just looked too green for me.
