Description

This is my version of M8 in Narrowband.

It is a 6 panel mosaic shot through an RC8, with OIII, SII and RGB shot through my widefield setup.

Processing was done in PI and PS

R (Ha 95% & Sii 5%)

G (HA)

B (OIII)

Stars (RGB)

As always any CC are greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking

Cheers

George
