Description

This object was imaged in two days end of february 2019.
I shot this from my balcony in town so luminance filter was not used considering the light polution.
I also used fringe killer filter to reduce Blue/violet halo around stars. The Running man nebula ended up well despite blue cut of fringe killer.
60X 60s G
59x60s R
65x60s B
Calibration and stacking was done in Nebulosity and processing in Startools.

This was my first real image from new camera and scope.
Hope you like it.
