Description

This is a revision of an image I posted in March with 19.4 hours of data from my home obsy to which I now added 12 hours of Ha data kindly provided by Alex Babiuc that I used for the upper part of the image where I was lacking Ha data. So now totally 31.4 hours. This greatly improved tha overall detail of the image. We have both used Canon 300mm f/4 lenses. To the central parts (trunk region) I used a 5" ES127ED refractor to collect the Ha.
