Description

This DSO motivated me to develop new noise reduction settings, a lot of the detail I wanted is very faint. I also didn't stretch the stars far before putting them back in, trying to preserve some colour. That didn't work, but it did perform a sort of star reduction which is not unappealing. There are various issues which I will address at a future reprocess opportunity, hopefully after gathering some RGB stars to replace the narrowband ones.

Description: New HOO version with the extra exposure. Dusty Mountain BBW 56 in Hubble Palette with RGB stars. This is now my most exposed tiny rectangle of sky: Ha 30 x 600s Oiiii 73 x 600s PLUS 26 x 900s Sii 60 x 600s 33.7 hours of exposure, all at gain 200, offset 50 (Not counting the exposure for the stars, which would be lucky to be 2hrs). Normally if I get over 20 x 600s in each channel, I'm happy.
