Description

My fisrt solo image of the Southern Sky made with Sadr in Chili with a refractor of 127mm.

At the beginning of August , my first session with this object gave me an idea of what I could get with more light subs.

I wanted to get the kind of halo around the galaxy . I also wanted to get the red nodules with some Halpha.

This Galaxy needs attention and some processing to get the finiest details inside the very bright core.

Red [email protected] -20°C gain high
