In today's video we'll take everything we've learned and put it to the test.  If we can get through the full workflow, we should be pretty comfortable using PixInsight at this point!  Now you are ready to get into the finer details with other content creators like Adam Block  and  VisibleDark Astro 

I'd also highly recommend watching the official tutorials from PixInsight which do a wonderful job explaining many of the topics we covered in this video.

Unfortunately, because I'm still new to PixInsight, I will need to use Photoshop for the blending portion of this workflow.  I'm sure there's a way to do this in PixInsight, but that'll have to wait for a future update.  In the meantime, I still think that Photoshop is a great tool to handle color, contrast, sharpening, and blending.

Here's the Pixel Math equation:
