Description

I always wanted to capture this target, but was uncertain as it never rises very high at my location. This time i tried it anyway.
To have enough resolution to zoom in on the nebula, i integrated the data using 2x drizzle. I combined the narrowband data using the hubble palette (SHO).
Revision A shows a crop in portrait mode, Revison B is a landscape crop and Revison C gives the entire full frame downscaled in size roughly by half.
