This is another 6 hours into the HA/OIII/SII stack.
I still need to dull the "brightness" out of it... but this was a quick processing before I headed of to bed since it took several hours to stack the images.
Image was processed with BlurXterminator also as the final step.

This is the same master images, but processed with the NB Colour Mapper script and BlurXterminator and NoiseXterminator ran on it.
I'll leave it to you to determine which is better looking.... my skill level hasn't increased drastically between the two processings in about 2 weeks of time.

A few more hours of data... and this was processed using StarXterminator to play around with.

And this with the stars added back in after cleaning up with BlurXterminator.

Same data set but processed with PixInSight using the Foraxx script.
BllurXterminator and NoiseXterminator applied to it.
