I am experimenting on severel nebulaes since I have bought the Optolong L-Enhance Filter. It works quiet well with my ASI294 Color Camera. But I havn't still figured out how to postprocess the stacked images. I always tried to extract the RGB Channels and process the seperatlly to achieve a more colorful result. I know that it's impossible to get an image like those taken with a monochrom Camera but anyway similar.... I hope. I think, that the single wavelength, the filter let pass are good enought for using them as Ha and OIII If other Photographers know a way for it please tell.
