Description

I am revisiting the Elephant Trunk nebula with a proper amount of data, although I didn't manage to capture SII this time. And to be honest, it's a filter I am not very excited about anymore.

I hope you like this version more than the previous one.

Comments and feedback is much appreciated.

Clear Skies!
