I added RGB stars using my one-shot color, but couldn't get this to align using the software I was hoping to use, so I did it manually. You can find an error if you look close. I also didn't get my reducer in 100% straight, so stars are skewed to the one side. It's also a tad noisy and just not that sharp overall. Maybe next year?
Added 44 OIII subs (and subtracted seven ones from the previous session).
Combined with 3 hours of data from the one-shot color camera under a full moon. It didn't work as well as I was hoping, so I probably won't try to do this again.
I think I was able to align it slightly better.
Final tweaks to tone down yellow/reddish background.
Fixed the last few skewed stars to the best of my ability, minor adjustments to selective color and levels.
Pulled back some of the saturation and increased contrast.
