This is a 50% reduction, the tif file was 400Mb, the full jpg 4Mb! Image taken this morning.

I used Astro Pixel Processor plus Photoshop CS6 using my homemade action set.

Galaxy Dust Enhance Filter

Space Noise Filter

Colour Stars Filter (no video yet)

I'm really pleased how it turned out, given the windy conditions this morning and the light pollution in Bexleyheath.
