Description

Here is my version Sharpless 101 the Tulip Nebula and the rarely imaged Cygnus X-1 bow shock. Cyg X-1 is the strongest X-ray source known so far. Cyg X-1 is considered a possible black hole. I spent lots of moonless nights to capture to the best possible OIII Data.

I used a straight SHO combination using Starnet++ and adding RGB Stars at the end of the processing. All data was captured from my backyard, processed with Pixinsight and Photoshop.
