Description

Shot this beautiful reflection nebula in February 2021. Because of my image scale of 0.617" I shot it in two panels and stitched them together in PI with help of Star Alignment tool for preparing the panels and GradientMergeMosaic process for doing the actual stitch.

Luminance was done with a CLS filter with a total of about 4h on each panel.
The color data is from Zoran Vidrih - https://www.astrobin.com/users/ZoranV/
who shot the same object this week and lend me his data to colorize mine.

Hope you like the result.
