IC5070 The Pelican Nebula in HST palette
« on: 09:50:46, 13 September, 2017 »
The Ha was taken in August 22 x 600s but the OIII 6 600s and SII 7 x 600s were taken on the night of 11 September 2017.

This is my first competed image of the year due o spending most of my time on variable stars.

Thanks Jim. I normally do bin the OIII and SII x2 but on this occasion I did not. I was also a bit surprised as to how it came out and will try not binning again.

Very nice Dave. I'd say you've got the colours and contrast just right  :thumbup:
