This is this years version of a little bit of the Soul Nebula. I like to call it "Bigfoot". I wanted more time but clouds expected for the next few days so this is it for now. I followed the book and calibrated and stacked in Pixinsight. Then processed further in PS. using SHO pallet

I would like to hear your C+C's.

Thanks for looking Rick
