Star processing

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've always struggled with keeping my stars nice and neat. But that wasn't a major issue with a large DSLR sensor before. With the Atik314L+ now I find myself struggling to my dismay. I've separated the nebula in Ha from the stars in Strata and am now left with a stars only layer that I want to stretch. Stretching it however blows the stars up and gives me strange fuzzy unround "halos" around my stars. I've tried reveal all layer masks to prevent the cores from burning out, but it's the fuzzy bright halos I can't control. And as soon as I unsharp mask this layer I get weird black dots inside the outer part of the brighter stars.

Can you point me in the right direction? Will upload an image later when I'm home...
