150mm refractor fitted with a hydrogen alpha filter and 2.5X TeleVue Barlow. The image was captured as a 2 minute movie using a DMK41 monochrome camera connected to a lap-top computer running SharpCap software. The movie was then processed using AviStack2 software to make a singe image which was then processed using GIMP2 to refine and colour.
