Description

Still collecting data on this one, but decided I am at least done with H-alpha. RGB is pretty much done too; OIII has been a challenge to get enough of. Pretty straight-forward processing here. Just mosaic assembly and then various stretching and curves. I am also including a starless version. That took a lot of work for something this big and dense with stars. I am proud of it even though it's not perfect.

Cheers, Nico
