Description

First light with my new ZWO ASI2600MC Pro. Shooting in the Midwestern US in the winter can be daunting. Since a week before Christmas, I've had exactly 5 clear nights to shoot. During processing I altered the color scheme to mirror the Hubble palette using Pixinsight.

Description: I've been trying to improve my processing skills and I was not really happy with the first version I posted, it felt too dark. I used masked stretch and then histogram transformation to pull out a little more detail. I also tried Topaz Labs Denoise and Sharpen AI. Let me know what you think.
