This is not a new image of NGC 7023 but rather a new processing attempt using StarTools now I am more confident in employing more of the modules. Original image from x100 thirty second light exposures at ISO 1600 plus x50 dark frames and x50 bias frames. Stacked in DSS and processed in StarTools. Equipment used SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm f/4.9 refractor, Synscan Alt-Az mount and Canon 600D DSLR.

The image shows more colour in the nebula and hints at the dust surrounding the object obscuring stars behind it.
