Title: LBN 575 and 573 in Cepheus
Post by: Roberto on Sep 07, 2019, 11:49:49
Inspired by Jim Thommes' image (http://jthommes.com/Astro/LBN575.htm) I attempted this one at the end of August/beginning of September before the full Moon. It contains two bright nebulae as well as a few dark LDN objects. I didn't capture as much colour as I usually do and it shows in some of the star colours which suffered in the LRGB composition.

Thank you all!  The nebulae came through surprisingly easy. I was not happy with the magenta in some stars though. I think I pushed the colours too much for the amount of data I had...
