M45 with Dwarf2 (post-processed)

M45 with Dwarf2 (post-processed)

M45 with Dwarf2 from a bortle 3.5 location, no moon, no filters.
"exp": 8,
"gain": 60,
"shotsStacked": 138

Post-processed using Affinity Photo with separating out the stars from the nebulosity in different layers with the help of starXterminator, processing the layers differently with the help of Topaz Anti-noise, then re-combining the layers.
I left one capture artifact (the blue squiggly line) in the photograph to show that there is an issue perhaps with a hot pixel that is not corrected with the dark library.
