Description

There have been no clear nights for weeks (almost certainly the result of finishing my new pier and roll-away shed), so I am working data I collected late last year. I took an RGB image from September 2017 and added Ha data I acquired in November 2017. The additional data really improves the detail and resolution of the nebula.
