Description

The last Object in my "you have to do that in this winter"-list...
The 30s exposures were still too long to get a nice detailed center region. Maybe i should add some very short exposures during the next session.

6x 600s Ha
15x30s Ha --> L+Red

6x 600s O3
15x30s O3 --> Green+Blue

Now i am ready for Summer ;)
