Re: The Elephant Trunk Nebula in the Hubble palette
I agree. I meant that my method of masking out the target for processing, leaving the stars and background alone, does not work on extended nebula and large galaxies. I am excited for the possibilities of the new method.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Really nice image but the stars are not as pronounced as they would be. I will play with the process.

i think it works exceptionally well for extended nebulas, where enhancing the nebulosity without hurting the stars can really bring out structures
Although this image could certainly be improved, I used this approach to pull out nebulosity and blend back with the "regular version". IIRC i did this going between PS and Pix
(can't speak to galaxies because I use other techniques for those)
