Description

3 hours of 3min subs R G B here. It needs more! But I like it so far. I know I should just be patient and wait for these targets to get into better position but I'm excited to get a look at them early.
Used automatic background extractor and corrector for the first time here, let me use much more of the frame.
A delicate target for processing, I tried to keep the stars visible in the brightest nebulosity but wanted to show as much as possible at the same time, of course :)
