About this image

This is my first go at Narrowband imaging with a color camera.

My choice of The Flaming Star nebula was simple. This area of my sky is quite high now during the early evenings. And I've been wanting to use my new Optolong l-eNhance filter with my camera and telescope for some time. IC 410 and IC 405 seemed like a good target to see whether the filter was as good as they say. Thankfully it was.
