Getting cabin fever with being clouded in again, so I am processing everyone else's data. Here's Jeff's awesome M31 shot processed in PixInsight. This is the first of no doubt many more versions to come. Not a great start - the sky isn't completely gradient free and the stars' mid levels are saturated. I just wanted to do something a little different than the other shots at reprocessing it by bringing out the areas of old stellar activity (Red), more recent stellar activity (Blue) and some of the darker dust structures.

I'll do better next time. Still on the PI learning curve...
