Melotte 15

Quick process of 30x180s Ha and 15x180s OIII, gain 200/50. Playing with color combos. Had to cut my session short due to clouds arriving just as I was getting some good subs. Not satisfies with guiding, think it was sloppy PA. This is my second attempt at processing with APP, still not sure which processing software I like best PI or APP. Comments are very welcome.

It's looking good. Try putting the Ha Data back in as an L channel in LRGB. It will shrink your stars and help out the guiding problem. Not to mention it will sharpen your detail.
