This picture is a reprocessing of old data of the reflection nebula M78.
I showed my result of this object already been one and a half years ago.
Look here:
I processed the data by my workflow with Fitswork 4 and Photoshop CS6.
Only the stars I improved slightly.
Because I had distorted stars in the corners because of absence of coordination between corrector and telescope.
Using telescope was a modified Williams FLT 132 which I could use in SaharaSky with my own Tele Vue Reducer.
I hope you enjoy it! Thanks
