The image was shot west of Fredericksburg Texas
Date/Time of photo
The image was shot on multiple nights during December 2014
To take the picture I used a Takahashi TOA 130 scope with a Starlight Xpress H35 camera.
The image was aquired at various times throughout December. There is approximately 20 hours of narrow band data (12 hA, 4 SII, 4 OIII). Additionally about 3 hours of RGB data was used to properly set the star color.
