Well this one kicked my newbie processing butt. I should have done twice as many 5 minute subs rather than the 10 minute, might have helped control the bright stars and the pretty bright surface area of the the galaxy itself. Live and learn.

I like it! There's no one right way, ~processing~ just determines what is brought out. Nearly all chips comprise "antiblooming" now-a-days AKA suppress electrons overflowing downstream by about 1000x. Before that, most bright stars turned into long streaks! And we lived with it... Tom
