Description

This image was shot over the course of 4 evenings. Total integration time is about 10 hours. In future photos, I plan to get more detailed in the number of exposures. These were 4 minutes subs and I used 20 darks, 20 flats, and 40 bias frames in my DSS stack. I took different flats for each evening of shooting just in case new dust/pollen was introduced into the imaging train. I also uploaded a "normal color" image of this same shot. I just wanted to play with some of the HST color techniques I had seen since some youtube tutorials of how to do it and I used the Optlong L-Extreme filter on this shot.
