Description

A rather bright and simple target, but still, a very majestic structure. This is a narrowband composite image using around 20 hours of data taken at Deep Sky West.

For the Ha channel I used an HDRComposition of stacks of 60, 300, and 900 sec exposures. The OIII and SII channels are build from 1800 sec exposures. Processing steps were rather basic, I did not even bother to use masks.
