IC1396 (reprocessed)


After watching several hours of video tutorials on how to process Hubble Palette images, I made this result which uses the same data as my original attempt. The basic steps were: 1) create a Hubble Palette via PS clipping masks; 2) Adjust colours; 3) Remove NB stars via Stratton. 4) Use the Ha as a Luminescence  layer (the OIII and SII where a bit noisy) - sharpen and apply High Pass Filter, reduce noise 5) Remove stars from Luminosity layer via Stratton. 6) Blend Luminosity into colour image. 7) Blend RGB star layer via PS Screen into image (this seemed to give a more natural effect than the alternative PS Lighten).
