I've been trying to learn Ken Crawford's Alpha Mask routines, so this is not perfect, but it looks pretty darn good printed 13x 19

There's 9 hours of Ha at 1800
4 hours each or RGB at 900
8 hours of Luminance (look Warren I spelled it right)

Thanks Gentleman, the title was poking at Rick as he made a comment the other day about how he's tired of seeing the same object posted 400 times. Personally, I post to try and learn from comments!

Ok I won't look.

Note for those not getting his joke. Mike is just having fun with my often make comment that I much prefer rarely imaged objects to those imaged over and over.

Beautiful!

I'm going to have to look into having equipment hosted at New Mexico Skies facility. I need practice so very bad and I cannot get it with my limited skies.
