I went back through my shots from the other night of M22 because I noticed the core after stacking did not look as good or full, as one frame did from the camera..I picked the best ones and just stacked 9 frames at 12 seconds each.. I'm still learning this processing thing and I need to start using flats..I have only been using darks..It seems the less you stack the better the final result..

I am very excited. A very good job.
Thank you very much.

Much better.But you still need to pay attention to the histogram and curve adjustments so you give it that natural look.This does look a lot nicer than your previous attempt but still looks a bit clipped on the black end.It seems to go from a black background to the bright stars with nothing in between.But with that being said you are still making great progress.

As when data is clipped there is no recovery of it.
This is your image under a different curve showing you what I mean.
Some info cant be recovered as its clipped out but you will see its more natural looking and not a deep black background and your core stars have more color and a little better resolved.
Just go slow and minor adjustments until you get the desired results.
Hope this helps
