NGC6692 Starless, named after the Simple Minds song.

I have been sitting on some crappy NGC6692 data since over a year, and I never got any satisfactory results... Now I had a second chance getting at least some data after a 2 months cloudy episode and this is what it turned out to be.

I started fiddling with the data with no clear goal in mind, and this is what I settled for. If I know this would have been the goal, I would have taken some different decisions at the beginning of the workflow. So maybe a good idea to revisit this data after a while.
