Description

I bought a new scope, and while it performs incredibly well, I have been having issues with star flaring. So while I figure out what the cause is, I'm having to process things a lot differently. The stars still have the flare, but it's only in the luminance form, as I removed them from the color since it would've wrecked the image. Thanks to some good advice, it's salvageable to me.
