Description
This is a 2 panel mosaic of the Elephants Trunk region taken in H Alpha only at this time. Imaged over three difference night in the month of July and August due to the weather etc... I like the detail in the nebula in these monochrome images. The H Alpha filter really helps in marginal locations such as mine. Eventually, I plan to add the OIII and SII components in the future.
