Hi all this is my version of the cats paw in NB.

HA is a 6 panel mosaic shot with an RC8. SII, OIII and rgb stars were a single frame shot through my Esprit 80.

HA - 22 subs @ 600 sec per panel
Oii - 156 subs @ 180 sec
Sii - 228 subs @ 180 sec
RGB - 120 subs @ 60sec per filter

Majority of processing was completed in PI, with final tweaks and saturation completed in PS.

As always any comments are greatly appreciated.

Cheers, George
