    Mohammad Ranjbaran: Thank you very much for your data, help and guidance.
    As a matter of fact, I just use Photoshop to deal with all the processing issues. But I certainly consider using PixInsight if I found myself very serious about Astro-image processing in the near future.

    amir: Dear Mohammad, I had focuse chsnging problem while collecting data on green channel. I will change data as soon as I could collect again.
    For correcting color it is better to use color calibration methods. In PixInsight, PhotonetricColorCalibration data will correct it.

    Mohammad Ranjbaran: Dear Mr Abolfath
    First of all, Thanks for sharing the calibrated data for this subject. secondly, I have a question about the data which I think it comes from my lack of enough experience in this field.
    The question is why a plenty of tiny green stars appear in the RGB combined photo. I cannot correct their color. Neither the levels help nor the curves.
    I would appreciate it if you could help me.
    In addition, I think somehow I could notice their presence in your processed version too.
    Best regards.
