Description

A bit of a nutty experiment to try imaging a brighter PN with the Moon really close by - it was 12 degrees away on one night!

Mostly worked I think and gave me some experience with LocalNormalization in Pixinsight to clean up some nasty background artifacts from stray light from the Moon I suppose.
