I feel accomplished I was able to get an image through all 4 filter last night before it hit the flip. Though it seems like i need long subs under the L filter for more structure. Or will need to try to play in photo shop layers. If I stretch too much the green in the background comes out allot. Editing was done with Nebulosity 2, stacking in DSS. This was done with 60% moon up.

Did some trial and error on the stacking blend. I blended the Blue and Lum files in DSS and used that as a blue channel. Then Stacked as RGB in Nebulosity before taking into photoshop. Adjusted the curves as usual then added the L channel as Luminosity mode. I found the wispy dusty background YAY I'm happy 3min subs is enough:Banane36: Merope has a touch of purple but can't get rid of it w/o effecting the color tone of entire image so I'll leave it be
