NGC 6888 in H-alpha and O-III light.

This was hard to process...
I have problems to have images calibrated with Flats, Bias and Darks, so much extra work there to have images balanced.
O-III, ionized Oxygen, really add forms to this image.
I will shoot S-II, even though there is much that in the Crescent itself.
I'll like to make this image to HST-palette as well.
