Description

Rosette Nebula / Caldwell 49 at 5000 lr and 130 lr across - 14 hours over two nights with 5nm narrow-band filters.

Processed in star-tools 1.6 (Dev - contrast - decon - sharp -HDR - color (SHO) and minimal de-noise. Colors (each channel hue) and saturation tweaked in LR. Struggled a bit with star control and over saturation but finally got a "Rainbow" from outer edge to core. Thanks for looking.
