    Here is a screen shot of a lightly stretched original frame. No preprocessing steps were taken on this image, and the light pollution is still evident. I performed an adaptive bin within Nebulosity and DDP stretch with some curve manipulation. No NR applied to this frame. During preprocessing of the posted image, ...

    Thanks. I will take a look at a version with less contrast. I tried not to clip the background directly though the whole process. Some tools, such as some in StarTools can knock down the background glow too much.

    This is a very busy area of the sky for sure. The number of stars can overwhelm the photo, especially if they are slightly out of focus or allowed to bloom in the camera. The Atik is supposed to prevent the blooming and I explained the use of the cutoff filter.

    The clouds rolled in around 12am, which shut me down. My Clear Sky forecasts was useless all weekend. I usually compare it to that from Intellicast. Being by the water can add challenges associate with fog too. My temperature ...

    For some reason my Flickr link appears broken, while it was working earlier. I will look into it when I can.

    PS> I am going to replace the Flickr version with the new one, so the hue will mostly be evident in the forum hosted frame.
