This is a reprocess of some of last years data. I cropped a MASSIVE amount of this image away including the rest of M42 and the entire Running Man Nebula, this hurt my resolution but hey, the world ain't perfect right?? Not nearly enough as a normal image, but these clouds are killing me. This is just 6.5 hours of data. 30/30/30 in the RGB department and 5 hours of Ha, all from my Bortle 9 central Tampa patio. No flats, which were badly needed, and not enough IG time. But, I don't hate my result. Cheers and clear skies guys!
