Description

SH2-101 The Tulip

About 14 hours exposure time, image #3 from my new scope (fourth posted) with thanks to Shawn from @VisibleDark.CA for helping me figure the problem I was having with my filters being mis-labeled, Chuck from @Chuck's Astrophotography for his tutorial on Pixinsight color mask, and @dylan_odonnell_ for his tutorials and instructions on cleaning a camera! ;-) !
