Colorful NGC 6559 in Sagittarius captured with a Stellarvue 140mm f/6.7 refractor, SBIG STLX 16200 CCD, I-Optron 70 mount, and Chroma filters. This was taken during the recent Stellarvue Dark Sky Star Party in Likely Place, CA ... the extreme NE corner of the state on the Modoc Plateau. Standard LRGB technique was used plus a new star reduction technique that keeps the small stars from "joining together".
