I am working on the colour version, but cannot seem to make up my mind... the life of astrophotography.

Version C:
- A morphological Transform using the morph selection operator.
Version D:
- removed black pixels without clipping crucial data to enhance contrast
- fixed the details in the galaxies to allow for more detail by reducing glow/glare
- sharpened 1st wavelet layer to further enhance detail in very specific regions (galaxies)

I'd like to perform a noise reduction routine, but hesitant to do so.
