Captured this in one night in my driveway (as usual). I had a lot of problems guiding that night, my dec would periodically start jumping around. But in the end I got a good 3 hours on this with the Edge HD 1100 and Hyperstar @ F/2. I'm really happy with the outcome!

I know it tilts a little more to Green and with SHO people tend to like to bring out the Gold colors. But there was just so much Ha Data in this and I guess I just really liked the greenish tint to it. It gave it some uniqueness among the pictures that I had seen. I also really like the structure details in this data set. I think this may become my first Mosaic! I never truly appreicated how huge this Heart and Soul complex really is.
