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

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!
