Its been a long while since doing any processing in APP, and this is my first SHO, but its come out with yellow/gold stars 🤔 and would there be any particular reason that my final image after saving came out brighter? both listed below.

The star colors are what they end up with these narrow-bad filters, you can perform star color calibration to get them more natural but that will change the nebula as well. You would need to add RGB to get it more natural in total. Lighter may be the effect of saving them in a tighter color space (say you saved them in JPEG, this is 8-bit if I remember correctly, which is much tighter then 16-bit and that will affect the data).
