I’ve been trying new techniques for processing deep sky images. I processed a separate drizzled stack for the core alone, and implemented it into the wider image. I also have been trying my best at dividing the image up by specific details/traits (stars, fine details, broad details, deep space) to work on them individually. I thought M31 would be a great choice to try this out on, I hope you like it!
