Description

With storm clouds filling the night sky here in Monterey for the last several weeks, it is time to revisit data acquired and processed over the last couple of years and reconsider the processing. These are data I acquired shortly after receiving my ZWO ASI1600MM Cool and embarking in the world of narrowband. This image is a reprocessing of those data applying what I have learned in the last eight months.
