Description

I have tried this one a few times and could never get it, and it wasn't until I did a hubble palette of the Eagle Nebula did I realize what my mistake was. I cleaned my filters and put them back in the wrong order. What I thought was my OIII filter was actually my SII filter. Once I adjusted that in TheSky, it worked pretty well.

live and learn, I guess.
