Description

In this false-color image, Ha is mapped to red and OIII is mapped to both green and blue. The colors end up looking quite natural. This object is very bright in OIII.

Due to an issue with CCDSoft, I was not able to run my usual automation. Therefore I was not able to auto focus (via FocusMax) periodically throughout the night as I normally would. Luckily focus was not a big issue because the temperature stayed pretty steady.
