Double Cluster in Clouds of Hydrogen
I first saw this image completed by Fabian Neyer I thought, hey why not give it a shot. Granted Fabian is a far better imager than I am, but went ahead and did so using his work as an inspiration.
I've cropped this image heavily for a couple of reasons:
1) The high amount of Ha in the region really took focus away from the Double Cluster. Cropping allowed the central focus to remain on the DC
2) It was much easier to control the colour balance in a much smaller region. It could very well be a new guy mistake, but I'm sure I'll learn more in time.
