Description

NGC6888 from my backyard in heavy light pollution. This is, again, combined data from last night and last summer, about 60-40%. I can't get rid of the background noise with my limited knowledge of PS CS3 without screwing up the background. If anyone has a suggestion, feel free to let me know :) But I'm not paying for a PixInsight license, that's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over my budget :P
