Re: RGB accents (stars)

I can try that- I guess you have to make notes and then match your crop settings exactly when processing each?

Re: Struggles with Stars in Startools

Yes my a7r4 is already full spectrum modded. It has the top spec kolari AR coverglass and I don’t recall halos using it previously (only adding filters). I have an astronomik clip in ir cut filter which is generally good in regard to halos.

Re: Struggles with Stars in Startools

I like point source stars… it’s the circular halo/glow I get around them that bothers me and doesn’t look right with how it transitions. It’s only in broadband. So what is that from exactly and how can it be tamed?

As a bit of an interesting follow-up, I just processed some SHO tutorial data on the Soul the other night, and apart from the tricolor NB it looks very much like the first image above. I'm pretty sure I've seen this before on Soul, and so believe it is probably target dependent, as in, this is what...
