Filaments of Cygnus, a new processing for natural colors

As usually, I reprocessed the two frame mosaic of Cygnus filaments. The color balance and stars are better now and more details are visible. This area in Western Cygnus is rarely imaged since it has a low surface brightness and more attractive targets are nearby.
