A nice little planetary nebula which displays a suprising amount of detail. I was able to resize the image by 1.3x in photoshop. I'm not sure if it is supposed to look this blue-green, the red frames seemed very dim.

The AVIs were stacked in Registax 3 with darkframe subtracted and "dark pixels" removed with Registax 3 Sigma Clipping. Curves in photoshop. RGB layers combined, mutiple L layerings and final saturation adjusted in photoshop. Slight noise reduction in Neat Image
