You may have pushed the stretch/saturation a little too far. Careful use of curves, with an L-mask, can cure this.

      Another test shot for brand new lens (same night as other tests of the same lens).
      Again, main stars and their colors are not distinct enough.
      Gear: Olympus E-PL6 with Panasonic 25mm/1.7 at F/2.5 on poorly-tracked panoramic head and static tripod
      Capture: 16 lights x 10s x 1600 ISO, master bias
      Site: deep country 26km from Limoges, France
      Sky: good (not measured, usually SQM around 21.4)
      Processing: Regim 3.4, Fotoxx 12.01+

      Also known as the Theta Carinae Cluster, The Southen Pleiades is a very bright open cluster in the Carina constellation. It was discovered by Abbe Lacaille during his visit to South Africa in 1752.  Containing around 60 stars, IC 2602 shines with an overall magnitude of 1.9 and its brightest member is Theta Carinae with a visual magnitude of 2.7. This cluster of young blue stars is relatively close to us at "only" 479 light years.
