Working with deep sky stacker

Reprocessed an image of the Hercules Globular Cluster I took a few weeks ago in Deep Sky Stacker (DSS) with much better results. Image 1 is from TIFF files converted directly from the RAW data and Image 2 was stacked using JPEG format. I had trouble stacking on the RAW files using DSS directly which is why I converted them to TIFF files.
