I imaged with my 5.5 inch refractor at prime focus f/7 with my ZWO 1600 mono camera. The luminosity component consists of 194 sub-exposures of 90 seconds each from three separate nights. The color component consists of 40 green, 49 red, and 64 blue filter sub-exposures of 120 seconds each shot over four nights.
