    thank you guys. honestly my processing effort was minimal. i think i didn't spend more than 10min on pixinsight and 10min in PS. didn't do any complex things or selective adjustments.

    thank you. normally i use all calibration frames. specially flats make a difference. Its always better use them.

    The color difference between the flame and the curtain behind the HH is perfect.
    Too many times I see images with them looking nearly the same color. This is how they are supposed to look.
    Did you use photometric color calibration on this?
    Well Done!
    thank you. initial colors are already on my 5min subs. I just did background neutralization, color calibration in pixinsight with default settings.

    Fantastic looking photo, its my favourite region of the universe!
    I like the sharp stars and excellent autoguiding, and colours, all without calibration and noise files!!
    Roger Clark likes the Ha to be like slightly pink, although I don't know if this is easy to get with a modded camera. Do you use this modded camera for daytime photography as well?
    With your setup, have you thought of getting a cooled monochrome CCD camera like QHY or Atik 383L+ and RGB filters?

    Have you tried HDR function in Pixinsight? Maybe you can try shorter exposures of the bright stars and get the haloes down on the stars? Pixinsight has this very good HDR module.

    I am trying to do the same and have not seen many examples of it. Pixinsight also would be better for pre processing and calibration, than DSS. I am surprised you use DSS when Pixinsight is better.

    thank you.
    yes i'm using it for day time photography. need to attach a uv/ir cut filter with each lens for that since i'm not using any cut filter inside the camera.
    i think i can do more with the modded camera before considering a dedicated astro cam. now with the H-alpha unlocked, i can do lot better than before when comparing my old attempts.
    i'm using the HDR function but didn't try it on this. this was a quick process to see how it will look like and i had the idea of redoing things after getting calibration frames but i was too lazy and this endded up as the final image.
    DSS is simple to use so i'm still using it to stack, i don't do any pre processing with it. i think pixinsight is better with monochrome CCD stacking but there is no noticeable difference with DSLR.
