Description

New Ha & RGB data sets of this object following proper collimation of the 'scope. (thanks Diego)

Reprocessed in APP using drizzle and a couple of other tweaks including Dynamic Distortion Correction - much more detail showing now and nice star spectrums in the diffraction spikes!

Amazed how much extra detail there was in the S2 layer star removal using Starnet++

Time to put this one to bed & move on - thanks for looking!

Photographed from my LP affected suburban backyard in Melbourne - Australia.
