The Astro Imaging Channel: Challenge nr 1

The Astroimaging Channel on Google+ proposed an image processing challenge (read here) based on a set of RGB images of the Markarian chain.

This was the challenge:

Gradient Removal while preserving star color.
A few months back, I wanted to try imaging my blue channel high up in the sky.  It didn't work out as planned and I have a terrible gradient through the image.  I've been able to get rid of the gradient, but it leaves a bad color cast through my stars.  The challenge is to remove the gradient and preserve the star color.

Here my solution in PixInsight.
