    Very nice...
    Not sure what software you're using for processing....
    Removing the green from the image will improve it a great deal by bringing back the proper white balance.
    This will remove the yellow/green cast to your stars and such.

    Very nice capture otherwise! Nicely done!

    PI makes this easy...
    Open it and open the SCNR tool
    the defaults should work,
    color to remove "green"
    Protection method "Average Neutral"
    Amount "1.00"

    Be sure you have already stretched the image before applying or it won't work correctly.

    I hope you don't mind, but I couldn't resist...
    The mods can remove it if you ask.

    It took literally longer to open and save it than to use the SCNR tool.

    Here's the image with one click of the mouse in PI.
    (This is why people like the program, my friend... )
