Description

Another cooperation between Samuel Diaz Lopez, Colin McGill and yours truly.

Unfortunately, this time I could not contribute any data, but my setup is finally working fully, so I will for our next works.

I did process this, though, entirely in PixInsight 1.7.

The image was acquired between the end of April and the beginning of May 2013, and consists of about 19 hours of integration time.
