Description

The actual exposures were:
Ha 12 x 1200s and 7 x 1800s
Red 3 x 600s and 21 x 120s
Green 18 x 120s
Blue 2 x 120s

Yes that is just two 120s subs with the blue filter, and I am very pleased how well this image turned out. I was planning to address that with more blue & green subs, plus more Ha to go deeper and also some OIII, but perhaps I won't, as a re-process using the existing data improved the image enough so I now declare it finished.

Improved processing, sharper and better colour especially in the stars.
