Thanks for the exhaustive replay Bob,Well, all I can say is that my processing steps are much much simpler than the ones you describe and I got lost a little bit along the way. While eventually how much saturation should be applied is a matter of personal tastes (and I do subscribe to your view of some excessively garrish star colours in a significant amount of DS imagery nowadays) I find that your image shows a biased pinkish hue all over the central bulge and some very brightly coloured H-alfa regions all araund the disk. Contrast this with much more muted tones in most of the stars of our galaxy.Anyway, thanks again.Andrea T.
