What software/settings do you use for stretching?
hi Ray,

I use Maxim for stacking and startools for stretching and post processing.
Maxim has the option of CIELAB or RGB or HSL when combining LRGB.
I occasionally use CCDStack, results are very similar.
I haven't explored options in startools yet, might have to ask Ivo about how to maintain star colour during processing.

I've uploaded an unprocessed, uncalibrated 5min bin1x1 B sub here
are you able to check if the stars have typical values.
