Stacked median in DSS, processed in CS5 following Jerry L's tutorials. Thanks Jerry, never would have been able to pull the nebulas out of this mess of stars otherwise...

@ Tim The 250 ISO helped a bit with the colors, I'm sure. I only had to pull up the colors a bit with 'Match Color' to get them where they are. Usually I have to do the 'Enhance Star Color' routine.
@ Pepe the stars are pretty, but really do make processing this area a big pain in the neck...
All the best,

@ jhousel, all I can say is "Wow". I didn't have any issues at all, except it took 3 weeks instead of the 2 weeks originally quoted. But, there was a Memorial Day 3 day weekend in the middle of the time period, so I wasn't too concerned.
Guess I got it done just in time??

@ jhousel, Certainly glad it all worked out in the end, proof will be in how the camera images under clear skies?
I was contemplating sending him a D7100 for modding, now I have to think twice, or maybe 3 times?

Nebulae looking good
Thank you Mike, I just wish these were in a less densely populated star area so they would 'pop' a bit more.
