5/10/2015. Good air from tropical storm Ana works wonders in the deep sky and in the morning when the Sun slips between the pines.
9 panels assembled by PhotoMerge in Photoshop CS6.
Best 75 from 500 frames each panel.
Normalized in PixInsight, assembled, sharpened, and colorized in Photoshop.

I think the color actually works against fine detail in this case. But it'll have to do for today. Good stuff yesterday, too. Note that I cleaned the acrylic component in the B600 blocking diagonal with Polywatch to remove the nasty-looking mineral deposits. And I swiped the accessible side of the blocking filter while I was in there with Baader cleaning spritz. Helped. But it's the air doing most of this.
