Description

Taken from Bortle 6 yard and is noisy but will add more data as I gather and reprocess.
FYI my Pixinsight workflow is WBPP => PCC => DBE => ABE => MaskedStretch => Curves to Saturate => Apply Lum mask stretched to increase contrast => HT to clip noise on background => ColorSat => MLT => ArcSinhStr => ACDNR
