Description

Inspired by some recent postings of this object, combined with clouds at night, I decided to have another go at processing this year old data. RGB was collected with the Esprit 100 and ASI071 (142 x 3 min) while Ha (Baader 3.5 nm filter) was collected with the Esprit 150 and ASI1600 (38 x 10 min). Unfortunately the moon was out.
