Description

IC 1396 The Elephant Trunk Nebula in Bi-Color with RGB stars. Imaged over different nights from 9/10/19 - 9/25/19. Unfortunately my auto focuser went out for my RedCat. But regardless it kept decent focus most nights although the temperature didn't fluctuate by more than 10 degrees or so.
