Astrophotography: separating stars from nebula

Post by pierrelabreche »

What is the recommended workflow for astrophotography?

Is it recommended to separate stars and background nebula, to process images separately, and then to make a composite?

A sample script would be appreciated

There are a number of programs created just for tracking and stacking images, noise reduction, and other types of specialized astronomical image processing.
