Description

Soul Nebula (IC 1848) in Cassiopeia, 7500 LY away...

My SII filter seems to have a problem because the signal obtained was very weak... so I first made an HOO version .

Bernard Michaud (Litobrit) kindly provided me his SII layer so that I could mix it with my own SII layer in order to finally make this SHO version ! Thanks Bernard ! :)

As for the HOO version, I still used my own SII layer to recover the color of the stars with the PCC process on Pixinsight.
