Description

Carina Nebula the great southern Nebula Processed this in Astropixel Processor, separated the channels into HA and O3 and recombined them. In Photoshop I tweaked the image then pasted as a luminous mask the HA which did a great job of taking the stars and enhancing the nebulosity. Did a further starnett++ and created a star mask, worked on the nebulosity of the starless image then recombined the stars in linear dodge mode.
