Description

I attempted this object using LRGB a few years back and wasn't too happy with the outcome so I decided to try again, but this time with a color camera (asi071). It's such a fantastic (but dim) object as it's a mix of every type of nebula: HII, reflection, and dark. 135x80s, 2x2 binned as even with all the subs, the background had a lot of noise.

Also, the most recent alpha version of Startools is quite awesome. Quite a bit faster as it offloads some stuff to your GPU!
