  1. the stars look like eggs, could there be bad guiding? It also appears in 30 sec exp
  2. If you look at your first version, I think it looks much better.
  3. Should you get rid of the blue "ring" I think you best do this by editing this as much as possible before you merge the filters. I have the best results in this way. The star itself looks nice, but it's around the stars that are a bit weird. I'm also struggling with this sometimes.
  4. What I mean is the strong blue halo around all blue stars. think this interferes with the dynamics of the image and that these stars look unnatural. But this is only my opinion
  5. I think the stars get a little too strong blue strength.It's those strong stars that get the most and first attention when you look at the picture(big picture ).Try too make a blue color mask, and tone the color down
  6. Yes, there was a little gradient there, I did not see this before the picture was finished, so I cut it off. I should have removed this before stretching, but forgot it. I can take a new round on this tonight.
  7. Then I have made a version of this as well. Great data and work with. and thank you for sharing this with us Made a soft versjon without any sharpness
  8. Thanks? I have to teach my star mask better. Unfortunately, I can not and use PS. I only use PI in my pictures. My impatience is also bad, so I never spend more than 20 minutes on a picture ?
  9. Created a new version. I've tried to bring more of the contrasts and colors in the picture. I find it hard to make the stars beautiful and clear.
  10. Thanks for the nice feedback Gøran. I might be a little too careful when I look at your photos. I will try and make a new version, as I see my preview became a bit "boring" compared to yours and all others.
