Description

Melotte 15 taken over the last couple nights. Today we have snow!

This is an SHO image basically with Ha in red, SII in green and OIII in blue

using Pixinsight's scripts, then a LRVB script to join the L data. This is actually my wife's choice as my image was too harsh she said! Credit the wife if she did good!

This image marks my 100 image posted to Astrobin!
