Hi everyone,

 

Clear Christmas Eve in London and despite a 96% moon, I ventured into the garden and managed to get 4 hours of subs of this stunning nebula.

 

Shot with an ASI1600MM-Pro and Astrodon filters. Processed in PI, using the following colour mix: R = 76%*Ha + 24%*SII, G = OIII, B = 85%*OIII + 15%*Ha.

 

I also attempted an SHO version of this but struggled with the colour and then way overprocessed it...I like this version better!

 

Thanks for looking!

Thank you very much, Mike! Pixinsight, after about 8 months, is starting to seem a bit less impenetrable...still plenty to learn!

 

Clear skies!
