M45 Pleiades - so near yet so far

Recommended Posts

I've been working on processing last year's LRGB M45 data from my rather light polluted site. I'm hoping to use it for a Christmas present framed print. I ve been following various tutorials online and the overall look is very close to what I had in mind.

I am not unhappy with the end result, as it represents a significant step forward in my processing skills...

...However, there are a number of things that I'd like to improve, not least the colour bleed from the redder stars. Any ideas?

Sorry I can’t help you with the processing tip, I still have a lot to learn in that department, but I will say your image is certainly worthy of framing, I love the framing and contrast with the (background?) red and yellow stars, they sort of frame the Pleiades cluster.

Very nice image.

One way to reduce the colour bleed is to use deconvolution on the Luminance stack before combining with the RGB .

Good tutorial here.
