    Default M3 - HaRGB



    Wouldn't you know it. Clear skies = full moon! But it has been so long I had to image anyway.

    Ha - 40 x 180s gain 200
    RGB 30 x 60s each gain 70

    Comments welcomed. Thanks for looking.

    Very nice! Well done, Steve! Why Ha instead of L for a GC?

    Since it was a full moon that night, I thought the sky would be too bright for the Lum filter. Seeing other posts with Lum images showed me that it can be done. Lesson learned for the noobie!
