Workflow Video 2

I just finished my second video clip, showing more intermediate processing techniques that I use.  This time the target was Orion, dealing with a very high dynamic range and how I preserve the core from becoming blown out while getting the most extreme faint dust lanes to pop out.  I also show a couple of tricks on how I subdue gradients and noise that begins to manifest after so much data stretching, but preserving star sharpness and extended object sharpness at the same time.

For those who missed it, here's my first workflow video, showing more fundamental processing steps that I use on a majority of my deep sky images.  I recommend starting with this one.
