Beautiful images! Would you mind sharing/linking your post-processing workflow? I have a similar setup but am not quite there yet…

Thanks,  this is what I did;

 

1- Captured 10 30 secs videos

2- Stacked in Autostakkert

3- Sharpened stacked images in Registax

4- Derotared in Winjupos

5- Color balance and saturation in PS

 

 

Hope it helps.
