Very beautiful.  I want to get into bi-colour.  I see you used the Ha as a lum --- How did you nail the stars?  They look really good.

On the colour layer, I remove all stars then blend then Ha lum layer in as luminance - in iterations, using blur and saturation at each stage until I can add the lum layer at 100% without any washing out of the colour ;)
