Description

Another SHO test from the big mosaic. This is a field I've returned to a number of times to test new ideas and skills in processing. This latest image was inspired by Andy 01's recent talk on the Astro imaging channel and Eric Coles' recent SHO images with their soft, colorful look.

Let me know what you think!

Clear skies, Nico
