Description

The Vulture's Head nebula B207 was extremely dim and difficult, and I'm not yet satisfied with the image. I had a flat mismatch with the red filter and had to crop some of the image away. There were also some residue gradients which were difficult to get rid of due to the dimness of the nebula and the short exposure. I will hopefully get back to this later!
