Description

Four clear nights in one week gave me the opportunity to image this very interesting region in Monoceros.

About 36 x 600 second subs stacked per Ha, Oiii and Sii filter.

Unfortunately I've lost the blue star colour on the bright stars, maybe from trying to deal with some nasty haloes. I might try to gather some OSC exposure to blend with this.
