The 37 sub-frames used to create it were captured between April 2015 and July 2016 using iTelescope T24 at the Sierra Remote Observatory in Auberry, California.

Equipment: Planewave 24" CDK, FLI-PL09000 CCD camera, Planewave Ascension 200HR mount, Astrodon LRGBHa filters with a total exposure time of 3 hours 14 minutes. The processing took considerably longer!
