Wow, that is a real improvement Mike. Was there a particular thing that you did that made the most difference?

Thanks

The first go around I started batch processed and combining in Maxim DL then went to Photoshop

This time I color converted each sub first in Maxim DL then I used Nebulosity to combine and didn't bother dark subtracting I removed the hot pixels myself

and I just worked it a little differently in Photoshope

don't ask what I did exactly I never wright down what I'm doing so I can try it next time :doah:

(note to self try jotting down what your doing for later images)

 

Mike
