Hello, figured I'd post my new results. This is my second image processed using PS CS5 & such.

Details: AstroTech 72ED+ATFF @F6
Orion SSDSI 3
300"x10 Ha
140"x10 Red, 60"x10 Green, 45"x10 Blue
Darks, Flats & Bias added.
Stacked in DSS, Processed in Fitsworks 4 & PS CS5

Thanks, maybe I'll get the hang of this, cause it was a lot of guesswork.

Still some untapped potential. Highlights are clipped and the color could use a saturation boost.

I couldn't do anything about the clipped bits (once the data is gone, its gone) but I poked at it in StarTools with 'HDR' and 'color'. Not a 'final' image but maybe it gives some idea of what's still in there.

LOL, that's cool. In the end that's all that matters.

has you tried fits liberator plug in for PS CS5? wow is very easy to use and can do all work in PS without migrating anything.

Not yet Jose. I will reference that. Thanks! I'm just happy to get a color image. It was quite a bit of work, but I'm very happy with the results.
