Description

This is M17, aka the Swan Nebula in Sagittarius. This is the first image I acquired from the driveway of my home in Northeast San Diego County. This image is comprised of 30 minutes of R, G, B, and Ha data. I mixed the Ha into the R data. This is also the first image calibrated and stacked with Astro Pixel Processor. Everything after stacking was performed in Pixinsight.
