This field from the constellation Monoceros, featuring the bright nebula NGC 2170 in the middle, is an incredible mix of nebula types: reflection nebula (the blue areas), emission nebula (reddish) and dark nebula (black), all bathed in scattered dust around the area.One challenge when imaging this field is that the geostationary superhighway crosses right in the middle, which in this case, it created an average of 4 to 6 satellite strikes on each of the subframes I took. Fortunately, using a sigma clipping combine to stack the different subframes was able to get rid of each and every strike in the final image.

Hi Mohammad. Thanks for your comments!
I use Astrodon LRGBHa 1st gen filters.
2nd gen. are much better, but they're not cheap either ;-)
