I did not expected that M92 was such nice globular cluster.

Pre-processing done in Pixinsight :
- overscan area offset correction
- bias correction
- hot pixel correction
- debayer
- registration
- stack
Processing done in Pixinsight :
- backgroung color neutralisation
- color calibration using cluster
- sky background removal (DBE in PI)
- slight deconvolution (masked background and saturated stars)
- non linear image creation
- green neutral
- color saturation boost masked and background desaturation
- TGV denoise (with high signal zone protection)
Final image :
- jpeg calibration done in Mac Photo (levels adjust and further saturation boost and color balance)
