I know. It's a slippery slope hey?

Thanks Kevin. Details are an issue as well with the noise that levels all the fine stuff.

Colour though is washed out and needs a boost to get that nice magentaish blue this Galaxy shows.

Thanks Greg. It just happens to be the f/ratio of the scope. I have a reducer to go to f/9.9 but I haven't worked out the spacing and all the hardware changes yet.

It's as pushed as I can. I made a "super lum" from both the lum and the RGB stack. It helps a bit but I need to work out skyglow mitigation and be smarter about the way I capture colour data.
