I am new to startools and want to share a result from my third travel to Namibia.
NGC6188 is a bright nebula complex in Ara, which cannot be seen from my home.
It was a hard way over the years to establish a successfull workflow for narrowband imaging. With this data I tried to replace
some steps with startools.
I hope you enjoy it.
