NGC 6826 - Blinking Planetary Nebula

 

Took while waiting for Andromeda transit but surprised after finding outer halo. 

60s x 150 = 2h 30m, C11/F6.3 under Bortle 7 backyard sky. No filter.

Calibrated and integrated in Siril and post processed in StarTools

Center crop and click to see faint outer halo

 

Hope you enjoy.

Thank you for complements. PN is hard to process as dynamic range of core vs outer halo is extreme. 

StarTools has great HDR feature and it provided straightforward path to process the data.
