Again trying some galaxies in LRGB which is difficult under my light polluted sky. For luminence I used an CLS CCD filter, which helps a little bit but kills some faint yellow stars. It was a long way to find the color settings, which I was happy with, but now its ok for me. Additional I tried out to give the stars some more color. Hope you like it, even it is not as deep as it could be under a darker sky..
