About this image

Technical details: This was collected with LRGB and Ha,Sii,OIII filters. The total integration time was 13 hours. It was collected with a 60mm refracting telescope at 255mm fl and f/4.4.

The image was part of a Stargazing Gazing course run by my local observatory. I use a mono CCD camera and Ha filter to show participants HII regions in the night sky.
