Description

Seeing was exceptional these nights and occasionally dropped to 1.4 arcsec. This is a 100% crop from the larger field taken with a OSC camera on the 11“ EdgeHD @ F10.

Special care was taken in postprocessing to separate the bright core from the noticeably fainter arms and subtle halo.
