The Emerald City
05/21/2013

The Cygnus Loop, and a good example of this very wide field setup. 12 hours worth of data, 20 minutes at a time over a period of a couple of weeks. 200mm is a wide wide field! This was my first attempt at the Hubble Palette. I apparently made a newbie mistake and almost no SII is coming through. I'm going to call this the "Emerald City" mix... I still like it, and I've been told there are no rules for Narrow Band, so there. ;-)
