Description

Cygnus Wall (NGC 7000)

Amazingly this is the first time I've imaged this beautiful part of the sky. The framing with my 533MC-Pro and Tak Baby Q at 455mm focal length allowed me to get tight into the central region showing nice detail in the wall. I've uploaded two alternate colour palettes, Red and Gold for Ha, let me know which you prefer. 

I'm much happier with my processing workflow now. Integration was done in APP, separating the Ha and OIII channels as mono. Channel merging, stretching, colours and star control was done in PS with StarXTerminator.
