Description

This is an SHO combination of the Prawn Nebula with RGB stars. I tried to massage the stars in this image a bit to combat the "hot core" that you get when using MaskedStretch and combined the RGB stars with the starless SHO image. I would appreciate your comments, as always.

Description: Changed the process for the RGB stars. I think it resulted in tighter, more appropriately shaped stars.
