Color Modual and Stars

Postby AF7JQ » Thu Jan 31, 2019 8:39 pm

After using the color module all of the larger stars are multi-coloared...not uniform in color. I don't know if I amm doing something wrong in startools, or if this is a problem with the camera or telescope. Any ideas?

It looks to me like the saturation is set really high. To my experience, images affected by chromatic aberration - even slightly - will likely show stars like this if the colours are as saturated as this. I would lower it and then if the nebula is not colourful as you like, finish tracking with denoise, mask the nebula and boost the colour. Hope that helps.
