Rehashing old data...

Given the lack of clear nights available to me lately I've resorted to processing some data I acquired in April earlier this year.

The subject is the Rosette Nebula, always a favourite of mine.  The image consists of 8 x 8 minute exposures at ISO800.   I've processed the image using some of the noise reduction functions in the newer version of Images Plus which has worked well.  And then I've sharpened the image with a series of High Pass filters of varying strengths to bring out the contrast of the dark dust lanes.
