Description

Been over a month since I have uploaded an image! Being out the country on vacation has its perks, but it also has its downsides sometimes :)

This is an LRGB image of The Eagle Nebula - SHO to come soon.

I have been wanting an image of this for absolutely ages. Was so happy to see it finished up when I returned. What a sharp data set as well, even drizzled at 2x this data holds up outstandingly well in the detail department. This is especially true for the narrowband data that isn't done yet.

Regardless, super happy with this, hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
