Description

Technically this is a very flawed shot, but I actually like the aesthetics of it. It was a very windy couple of nights, and my collimation was pretty poor, but I persevered anyway as we've had so few good nights.

Limited photons, and my OIII subs were shocking and went straight to the bin. So I set about processing the image with just Ha and SII, playing with the palettes etc. and ended up with this, so I decided to throw it up.

Goes to show that sometimes failure can be OK to look at (as long as you don't zoom in! :) )
