NGC 281 Pacman Nebula - 2022

NGC 281 Pacman Nebula - 2022

Multi-night project combining 2 hours of data from a Bortle 6 site (used as the broadband data for star colors) with around 8 hours of data from Bortle 9 Berwyn with the new L-Ultimate filter for the nebula. Very pleased with the results, much better halos on the stars compared to the L-Extreme. Thanks for looking and Clear Skies!
