Description

Here is a version of my previous published Heart and Soul Nebula. The image was heavily processed in Pixinsight. I eliminated the stars using a tutorial by Adam Block. Heavy fiddling with the star masks was required. I combined the naked/starless image with the biggest stars from the original one giving back some depth. Maybe the image got some artificial look and I think the structures are littlebit to soft but I learned a lot of things about masks in PI.
