Hi,

 

Been experimenting with new methods. Developed a new layering technique to significantly improve star colors. Found the function "Chromaticity according to hue C=f(H)" in RT to be useful to bring up subdued HII regions while not blowing out the star clouds…

I found the results to be quite workable…

Those "L*a*b Adjustments" tools can be quite useful indeed waytogo.gif   While I have taken quite a bit of good advice from BQ, I did actually discover some of those tools myself.  Do I get a gold star?
