Description

I went back to this subject to do it in Ha. I think I will, at some time, try to incorporate this data into a previously imaged broadband image and see what happens...

I'm pretty happy with this but the thing I've learned is that to make the next step in my evolution, the amount of integration has to increase dramatically.

Description: I accidentally uploaded the wrong image... I had cropped this to try to register it with a RGB imge to see what I can get combining. This is the image (B) that I intended to upload. Monday morning for ya... lol I see this image as another step forward generally. Still some coma issues to work out and it really needs more integration time to bring out details but still, a step forward.
