Description
This is my first experiment with my filter sets of Astronomik. The site on Khamiran-Esfahan is fairly good, especially when filters used. The picture is composite of 3*120s with with CLS-CCD filter @ ISO 1600 and 3*180s with Astronomik Halpha 12nm filter @ ISO 1600 + 8 Dark frames. HaRGB technique has been used in processing the picture (Ha as the red channel of final picture rather than simply stacking Ha and RGB).
