Description

I saw this interesting object on Goofi's page at: http://www.astrobin.com/265871

The first revision is four nights worth of Ha data with two telescopes and two cameras. It was unable to match the contrast in Goofi's fantastic image, but RGB data collected overnight with an ASI1600MM-Cool and William Optics 81mm GT was added making a semi-colored composite.

Revision C is a reprocessing with SBIG and ASI1600MM data merged into a red channel for RGB and SBIG data star-reduced in Pixinsight to produce luminosity.
