Description

This day I had extremely good seeing. Unfortunately it was almost Full Monn (82%) so it was really challenging to collect nice LRGB data.

But I tried and anyway I'm really happy of the result.

Adding Ha 35band allowed to reweal some nice detail of starbursts which are surrounding galaxy

Native scale is 0,35''/pix :)
