Description

Another Pro/amateur image... I had a lot of fun on this one. 20 magnitude between the core and the faintest 24th mag stars.

Data from Serge Brunier on the T1000 of C2PU observatory. 4h of luminance and 1h30' per layer.

Not easy tu process this, keeping the big stars OK and getting the very faint Mag 24 ones of the galaxy.

NO AI used here (no Starnet nor Topaz), pure LRGB, pure processing
