No. Most astrophotographer don't care about "true" color and prefer to simply have "pleasing" color. I suggest you simply use whatever system you use to make a pleasing rendition of the sky rather than a "true" one.

I believe one could aspire to rendering their work in a true to life form and I would not discourage it. I would suggest you study the nature of light and emissions of celestial objects that truly do emit colors in the visible / photographic spectrum. If you decide to render your work closely to this relationship, then you have done what you have set out to do. My opinion (or others) on the matter should make no difference on how you produce your work as you desire.

Work hard on the matter and be happy with it.
