Description

Here is NGC 6357 in SHO from El Sauce in Chile. Trying to balance out the background while enhancing the nebula was a bit more tough than I thought it would be, but then I am still learning on doing the SHO stuff. As always I seem to stretch images pretty hard, but that's just my style, so I hope you like what I've done with this here. As usual lately the telescope.live site is where I've been doing this through.
