Description

Messier 67 Open Star Cluster in the constellation Cancer. This is the last image I managed to complete with my RedCat from the winter imaging season. I have now packed up the trusty little scope for galaxy season.
I believe this is the first image of M67 on Astrobin that has incorporated Ha into the mix? I have to say though the Ha signal is very faint even with about 20 hours of data. Anyways, it was a fun imaging project and a little off the beaten path by incorporating Ha signal into the mix. Hope you like it.
