Description

This was imaged over many nights. Basically I would tack on a couple of hours of collection on this target near the end of the night when Cygnus had risen above my tree-line.

It feels good to be getting some narrowband data to work with after the Galaxy season. I had forgotten how much fun one could have with color palettes and custom pixelmath blending.

This small feature within the Pelican nebula looks like the edge of a world that drops off a steep cliff into the void. It's a beautiful region and feature. I'm happy to give it some quality time.

C&C welcome.
