Corona Australis

Finally had two clear nights after weeks of cloud and rain. Managed to capture two targets, the first was Omega Centauri already posted earlier today and now here's a 2 panel mosaic of Corona Australis or NGC6729.
This was processed using WBPP, NSG and Photometric Mosaic scripts in Pixinsight.
Pretty happy with the results given the short exposures and 70% illuminated moon.

Very crisp and colourful mosaic.
Great use of the small pixel 183.
