This is still a work in progress but so far its the result of 4 hours focused on NGC 6729. Still got another 4 hours or so to go on it and it a learning exercise for me on a lower magnitude target. Its my second real target in Astrophotography, really to learn more about capture and signal processing on a dimmer target. Learning how to process on each colour channel in Photoshop has been a lot of fun so far, just playing and trying setting to see what happens.

Very well done for a second target! Interestingly, there are a couple of DSOs that are more prominent than the not-very-bright Bright Nebula NGC 6729. The prominent dark nebula is Bernes 157 (BE 157), and you have the globular cluster NGC 6723 just above NGC 6729.

 

If you can get some more color saturation with Photoshop, you might start to see some blue appear in 6729. Nevertheless, as I said, a great second image!
