My friend, Prof Ethem Derman captured this beauty with my ex-C11 Edge w/hyperstar.

He used a Zwo 294 MC camera together with Optolong L-Pro filter to capture the subs.

He asked my help for post processing the data which I accepted with pleasure. With the great help of my daughter Cansu with the color palette here it is.

I think we could use more subs for a better image but this one still looks good. Not at 1:1 though. It seems the scope is out of collimation and the stars have some weird shape. Hope you like it.

My thanks go to Prof. Ethem Derman for providing the data and giving us the chance to work with it.
