Another great image. Well composed and nice tight stars and no halo around the larger stars. Really well done. Is that lack of halo a trait of that particular filter?

The Radian filter for OSC cameras that I use has very little halo and any that appears can be fixed in PP anyway.
It is no longer made. I would recommend Antila filters for OSC or Narrowband. 
I remove stars at a point after going non linear and just process the Nebula and background so halos are easily fixed before I add
the stars back in.
I process the stars separately.
