Observing location
Redhill, Surrey

With time on my hands this year I've worked hard learning PixInsight (PI) - it is infamously tricky to pick-up but has eventually been worth the effort.  Now able to undertake the basics I'm revisiting old data to re-process with PI. 

In this instance I've used the HST palette on the Pacman Nebula originally imaged in August 2019, with a successful outcome that I believe is a step-up from the original processing.
