Description

The Flaming Star Nebula, or part of it. Capture was over several nights; RGB data when the Moon was not much in play; Ha whenever I could. This is rather early in the year for this target for me [mid to late September for Ha, a little later for RGB], requiring late in session data collection. Sleep is over-rated!

~17.7 Hours integration; 10 in Ha, the balance roughly divided among RGB.
