Steve,
Looks like it came out real nice. What do you use to co-register your RGB Masters?

Thanks Jim. I stack in DSS but found the luminance was not matching the RGB so I used RegiStar to bring it together. This was likely from field rotation (??) since the RGB were taken on night one and Luminance was taken the following night.
