So cloudy at night. No new imaging. I have reprocessed some shots of M44, the Beehive cluster using some techniques I have picked up recently for Pixinsight.
I have tried to enhance the star colours here but keep them natural as well.
Method 1: contrast enhance linear data for chrominance before stretching.
Method 2: After stretching, use colour enhancement tool with masking at specific points only in the spectrum.
Integration of 4 x 5 minute subs (20 mins total).
