I've had this data since last year and was never able to properly stack and align it nor get the colors quite right due to various problems with DSS so I decided to give it a go with Astro Pixel Processor. APP did a great job aligning and correcting the LRGB colors. L 28x300s, RGB 12x200s 2x2 binned.
