This one is an extremely difficult one for me to process right. I am using data acquired from Casey Good and let me tell you, he's good at this, but I am struggling. This is probably due to differences in processing technique. I use APP and Photoshop for all my stuff, and when doing an L and OSC combine APP splits the OSC into channels and doesn't always get the R and B split properly. Still, this is the best I can do with APP and Photoshop. One of these days I'll do a little more with PI than simply download the updates as they come. Anyway, this is one that I've wanted to get for a while at a decent resolution. I did it almost a year ago at 420mm FL not realizing how small it is! And that with a DSLR! So, enough of my blathering, here's the image!
