Description

Here is my 2 panel mosaic of the running chicken in narrowband, with RGB stars.

Much of the mosaic was cropped back as all I wanted was the main nebula to feature.

The image was processed in PI and Photoshop.

Thanks for looking and as usual any comments or criticisms are most welcome.

Cheers George
