    What do I think? I think I cant keep up with all your reprocessing

    I like the one you've called -blue +green per Jim the most of all three, I think. Looks the most natural. The first one is interesting, but looks unnaturally dark.

    Bob -

    I like your M31 reprocess with the improved colors. When I was using Photoshop it was always a difficult task to get the colors "correct". That was one of the main reasons I switched to Pixinsight.

    Your last reprocessed images are for M33 (not M31)! I'm 75 and easily confused - stop picking on me.
    It looks like you went too far (to my eyes) with the Noise Ninja noise reduction because the details in the galaxy are all smoothed out. It is the eternal battle between detail & noise. Just my opinion which, as always, is worth what you paid for it (nothing).

    Thanks, Steve - I have to disagree with you: I want your opinion! I agree that the processing has gone too far on M33. I was so busy trying to get the colors natural that I forgot there was an actual subject of the image! Oh well, I guess I'll have to do one more
