C

new processing approach with an auto-adaptive weighted average stack instead of sigma-clipping

D

I'm digging this workflow for processing. This time on a median sigma clipping stack. crop, curve up, astroflat, enhance, nr, lighten, contrast, raw nr, astroflat, curve down

E

restacked the same 16 frames using Sharpcap Live Stack folder monito with the same stacking settings used for the first round of live stacking. Processed to the same levels as the previous (D) DSS stack for comparison

F

same as E, but with one more curve stretch

G

one more curve on the DSS median stack (D)

H

trying different processing approaches in an attempt to stretch the data for a wider distribution but without breaking it up.
