Well ,its really dark now at night,time to capture some faint objects.
I wanted the ghost nebula for so long,and worked out pretty well.

I used very short subs for the colors,and long for the luminance.
Maybe the next time i do longer color subs too,i couldnt get the stars nice after using luminance.

Processing was not easy,only after removing light polution in APP i get the right color.

But im happy for now.
hope you like it too..greetings John
