More experimentation with starnet++ neural net application. This is a 5 segment hydrogen alpha mosaic covering bright portions of Barnard's loop in Orion. Image tiles were processed, star removed, then combined into the mosaic panorama as a final step. The software does an excellent job on small stars, in very wide field images, while preserving subtail in the overall image.
