      Description

      This has been a challenge for me, at the height of my image of Abell 85, both very vulnerable objects especially the nebula (HFG1), and its outer ring that surrounds the nebula, obtaining a clean image was impossible, despite the time of integration, the image may be slightly over-processed, the use of "starspikes pro" helps to mask deterioration in the stars.

      Greetings to all, as always any comment / criticism is well received.
