Description

IC 405, The Flaming Star. First light with my new Astrodon HA 5nm filter and FLI 2-7 filter wheel. At the moment, this filter is sitting lonely and alone with 6 other empty slots waiting to be filled as I save up for them. But I couldn't resist grabbing some HA data before the others arrive.

I need more darks -- only had time for 5 of them. and I've got color data from my G26 camera. So I'm thinking the next step is to use this as the luminance in an LRGB.
