Description

The Monkeys head nebula ist one of the brightest HII-Regions. Therefore it is also interesting for visual observation and is almost visible with binoculars.
In this first version, I've waived to push the OIII-colors and therefore the red glow of the Ha-wavelength dominates the whole scene. Maybe I can capture SII and RGB in the upcoming nights.
