Unusual Sharpless for this SH2-71 which looks a little like a grimacing mouth. Taken with the CDK12.5 with about 8 hours of imaging, LRGB + Ha. I did capture some OIII but have not included it in the processing.

Very cool. Nice to see an unusual target done so well. Did the OIII not contribute anything to the data?

Really ?

"Not the prettiest SH2-71"

 

I think that is a pretty neat image !!

I imaged this target back in Sep 2017, just in Ha, if you care to compare.

Of course, just in Ha would be more or less "Mono"...

Re the OIII data, it seemed to no add a lot versus the L data. In addition, I wasn't really sure how to integrate it : blend with L or with Blue ?

thanks for the link on the Ha data.
