I’ve managed to acquire the colour data for the Luminance image acquired last January. The RGB date comprises of 7x 3min subs for the R,G and B channels. I initially processed this as an LRGB image, but wasn’t happy with the result, so I overlaid the RGB data over the top and created a hole in that layer for the LRGB section of the nebula to show through. Yes, the stars are a little larger, but the colour seems just that little more intense. The Blue Channel was a little too dominant, so this has been backed off a little. The 4.2mag star in the bottom right of the frame is 81 cyg.
