Description

Yes its the North American nebula but to me I see a Phoenix rising under a rainbow. Not entirely sure what caused the rainbow halo effect on the subs (any ideas?) but I decided to work with it instead of eliminating it. This was shot back in June. I am still learning about star reduction and working to improve this so there may be future updates.

This also was my first time using the AsiAir pro. This was a new setup with the GEM45EC, GT102 w guiding and ASI Air Pro.
