M51 reprocessed

This is the same data set reprocessed with some new techniques, most importantly the new "masked stretch" in PixInsight 1.8. I really like the way it keeps the stars under control, avoiding overlarge bloated stars with no color, now the star colors are much more apparent and are smaller and tighter. I also kept the background slightly darker to better show the small galaxy lower left.
