Description

This is a new image from the OS Veloce RH200. The image was taken by my friend Giovanni Dal Lago and it is a 100min Ha (bin2x2) + 5:5:5 RGB (bin3x3). I then about 80min of LRGB (bin1x1) taken with the RH200 some months ago in Austria at Sattlegger.

The colur datas was still not enough for the faint parts so a little contrinution (20%) from my old M42 area image was used to add deepness and richer color contrast (that's why very faint spikes can be seen on the most luminous stars). The overall softness and haloes on bright parts are only due to the color component.
