      Description

      NGC6369 the Little Ghost
      For whatever reason I have a good run with planetary nebulas at the moment.
      Again this was a case of more or less not knowing what to image in the morning.
      I decided to do NGC6369 and the seeing was brilliant, the worst FWHM for the RGB frames was 1".
      I added Ha and OIII the next night but it was not as good so I just blended it in slightly for the outer parts of the planetary.
      As with the recent NGC3132 I upscaled the image for processing and display as the Little Ghost is pretty small.
      Hope you enjoy it.
      Wolfgang
