srosenfraz, thank you very much for posting your PSD file. I downloaded it and played with your setting, and then reset it and followed your instructions and learned a lot.

Much appreciated. I use that same filter and I'm always struggling to get rid of that color cast. DSS does do a decent job itself though.




I'm very happy to hear it was helpful, Addict. :-)

I like to post the .psd files because I think it describes what I'm doing a whole lot better than I could ever write. Plus, it gives people the opportunity to turn on and off the layers to see what each adjustment does.

Thanks again - looking forward to seeing your images!

I've had this problem for years now; white balance. In short, it's a pain but two days ago I was shown the light (pun intended). Try eXcalibrator. Take a while to ga through the documentation but if you do it step by step it's going to work.
I hope it's going to be the same eye opener it was for me.

Thanks again Scott. I've tried 'Increase star color' but after about two iterations the star cores get blown out. The color is there but the stars look strange. I'll give Jerry's method a try. I'll also knock down the black point. Your tips are great and I've got both your posts printed and saved.
Thanks again for your help.
John

I just printed them as well Great reference material.

I went back to one of my previous images of M35 and your technique helped tremendously!

Your M35 looks really good, Addicted - I can even see NGC 2158 rather well.
