This is some Ha that I shot back in January 2017. I always hoped I would get the LRGB to go with this, but I have not yet got round to it. I thought I'd process the mono image and post it up for now, so that I don't forget about it.

This is from my home observatory in the UK, using a Williams Optics Star 71 and a Moravian G2-8300 CCD with Chroma 3nm filters.

Ha: 23 x 1200s
