Part II of yesterday evenings work.

I didnt grab quite as much SII as I did for the Pelican, just 90min worth - but given a big enough NR hammer I managed to bash it into submission before blending it with the Ha lum :D

Also, ive been using it to perfect a slightly different method of star removal for the colour layer. Namely using Noels "select brighter stars" first, expanding the selection by 1, using a gaussian blur on that selection of 25, then healing out any remnants with the spot heal brush before applying dust & scratches at a setting of 6 to zap the smallest stars.... works pretty well!

Thanks for looking! :)
