The Tifs were then aligned and stacked using Registar 1.0.7 and then processed and cropped using Picture Window Pro. Other Notes: First time I used a Light Pollution Filter (Orion Broadband). The good news was to did a great job with this nebula. The bad news is I really don't like what it does to the stars and their color.
