Something of a better process of the Ha component of last night's work. (Sans calibration. Dark frames incoming) This object is a leviathan. I'm very tempted to just shoot the entire mosaic in Ha as HST palette is proving a difficult chore (Basically zero OIII) and as Marc Basti said, with the weather here, it'd probably be years before I'd finish it. Encouragement to persist with the Hubble palette is very welcome.

PERSIST! With the level of detail you are getting....the Mosaic would be Epic! Take Nike's advice my friend and "just do it", lol!

I don't know about the OIII component, Cannistra says there isn't much there. But from what you got here, this has the makings of a nice detailed Ha mosaic. It's going to look cool. Marc
