Description

NGC 2170 is a reflection nebula in the constellation of Monoceres the Unicorn
I started this project in early January. Almost every sub-exposure had a satellite trail. This has to be the worst target I've ever attempted and I'm renaming NGC 2170 to Satellite Road :)

Telescope: 11" Celestron EdgeHD w/Hyperstar F/2
Mount: Celestron CGEM-DX
Camera: QHY23M

Lum- 16x180***
Red- 15x120
Green-15x120
Blue-15x120

***I took nearly 60 LUM subs. The trails satellite trails were so consistent, no amount of processing could remove them. They were deleted :(
