Well, after looking at the image for a while, I decided I wasn't happy with it so I gave it another go at processing. I think this one looks better. If you have suggestions on how to improve it, let me know.

Also forgot to mention the specs for the shot earlier.

12 - 300sec subs (over 2 nights)
15 - Darks
17 - Flats
10 - Dark Flats
50 - Bias

Software: BackyardEOS, Nebulosity, Photoshop CS3, Astronomy Tools, GradientXTerminator

Yep. It keeps getting better and better. The last picture is about as good a picture as anyone could possibly take of M27. Great job!

Great reprocessing, I think that you've created a real work of art vibrant colors and tons of details.
Be Well

Looks significantly better. Really good job! My personal preference is for a background sky somewhere between the shade of your last two (i.e. a tad darker than the last one, but not jet black). But that's just MY personal preference when processing.

Hope you have many more clear skies!
