I would advice to go very easy on any noise reduction scripts, I think you have way more detail in here than you think. I would even do without that on the nebula itself, so just on the background. This can be done in something like PI using masks to protect parts of the image. If you're not able to do that, I would just not do it at all. Noise is part of the game anyway. But that's simply my take, just wanted to give a tip. 🙂
Yes well it could become better with more data for sure, but I clearly see more detail in this second processing of it. If you look at the dust swirls, you can see them more clearly, don't you think? It's always a learning process anyway, part of the fun. 🙂
Yes, it is. I always learn something new every time from this forum.
