Captured this over 2 nights. The oxygen was particularly challenging. One thing that I did do differently here is I used Adam Blocks Star de-emphasis ( but rather than mess with noise generation to try and get the Sub_Pix just right, I used the StarNet++ plugin to remove all the stars. Why do it manually when you have Machine Learning? Anyway I would have liked to get a little better output but overall very happy with the outcome.
