Re: December 2017 Astrophotography Contest

Ok you cant go all alone. I was going to try and get a color version but not happy with the processing so far so here is 15hrs of 1200s Ha's. The Spider and the Fly nebula. The Spider is on the left, IC 417, and the little Fly is NGC 1931

Thanks for looking!
