Second image for the weekend.

After my last blog post I had some extra time and had a turn at processing another image from the Sharpless catalog, this time it was SH2-171.

Like my last post this image is also processed in the popular HST palette.

This image was also taken using our observatory that is located at Stellar Skies, LLC. in Central Texas. The data for this image was acquired in late October and early November.

Here it is:

SH2-171 in the HST palette.

Narrowband images like this one as much art as they are science.

I hope you enjoy my interpretation of SH2-171.
