The wonders of image processing
The Helix nebula processed in 2 ways:
On the Left, LRGB with a little Ha enhancement.
On the Right, S2-Ha-O3 Mapped as RGB
In Both images the stars are natural colored RGB
The Horsehead nebula - Hydrogen Alpha processed in Black and White
On the Right, The outcome after stacking
On the Left, Same image after delicate detail processing
M 45 with a Canon DSLR
On the Right, The outcome after stacking.

This is a six (6) panel mosaic taken over 3 years!!!
With careful image processing you can't see the transitions between the frames
Many images and examples can be seen here:
With the skills you will learn - terrestrial pictures can also benefit...
in these examples - On the Right - the original outcome from the camera (Iphone 6)
- On the Left - After image processing
