This data took me a bit over 3 weeks to accumulate. It is a total of about 33 hours.

147 x 300" Ha
100 x 300" SII
140 x 300" OIII

Equipment is in my signature.

I honestly expected much more out of this data. I am actually quite upset. It is definitely lacking somewhere. I do not know where it is lacking. I cannot pin point it, but I am not totally happy with it. I have been playing around in PI but still struggle with the data.

Ultimately I am going to keep this data. It will be great to add onto. There is SO much faint nebulosity around this object and I would love to have hours more integration to bring it all out. Eventually I will get better at PI and editing as well. Enjoy!
