This is my first serious attempt by startools. I have stacked in APP then Startools, which deliver a great result. Finally a little bit in photoshop, maybe it all can be done in Startools. I look forward to working more with this software!

Hi John,
that's a great M51! :D Well done!

IF I had to pick on something, maybe the darken "halos" around the stars,
for me it works to reduce almost to zero the Scale 5 when using Denoise module.

Also some people maybe make an Star mask then in Layer module, select brighten and
increase Kernel. : )

But again, amazing result :D Very smooth and great details ! ^^
