The central part of NGC 4449 contains of a population of very young stars, not much older than 5 million years, which extend through the galaxy in a bar formation. Numerous red H II regions are currently forming stars. Chains of young bluish-white star clusters are visible, some of them near massive dark clouds of gas and dust which provide the fuel future episodes of star formation.

The shot: TSOptics TSO -RC 203 mm+ ASI294 MC+ UVIR filter. 18x25" stack, Gain 390. Capture soft Asiair Pro.

The ST basic work flow: Bin / Crop (stacking artifacts)/ Wipe (Uncalib1)/ Dev/ Flux (Noise) / Color (scientific+adjust RGB)/ final Denoise ( 6 pixels)
Extra workflow after final denoise: Shrink + Sharp+Flux (sharpen)+Denoise 10 pixels

Trio of profile galaxies in Virgo. NGC 4216 is the largest, at 45 Myl and the other two are NGC 4222 and 4206 at 63 Myl.

The shot: TSOptics TSO -RC 203 mm+ ASI294 MC+ UVIR filter. 15x25" stack, Gain 390. Capture soft Asiair Pro.

The ST basic work flow:
Bin / Crop (stacking artifacts)/ Wipe (Uncalib1)/ Dev/ Flux (Noise) / Color (scientific+adjust RGB)/ final Denoise ( 14 pixels)
Extra workflow after final denoise: Sharp (galaxy mask)+Flux /sharpen (galaxy mask)+Denoise 4 pixels

I am also surprised, there seems to be a lot of interest in this type of simple astrophotography with minimal equipment.
Thanks for the comment and encouragement!
