Description

This is a complete reprocess of data gathered last year.

In my previous versionI was going for drama and artistic licence, but this time I'm trying to be more subtle, and to let the object appear more"natural", although it's a narrowband image.

With the words of Martin Pugh and Strongman Mike ringing in my ears - "Respect the data" and "It needs to look like an astronomical object", I have attempted to rendered a more pleasing image.

20 hrs of N2, S2 & O3 - 30min subs and 15x1min RGB for the stars.
