This was my main project for this year's Starfest in Mount Forest, ON. I also got to use some Ha data I acquired at the tail end of last year's Starfest (2018), so despite not being a huge amount of integration time, this image was still a long time coming. Starfest was incredible this year, minus a bit of surplus moonlight, with almost perfect weather during the whole event. It took a lot of discipline to dedicate my time there to only imaging one object. Thanks for viewing!
