Description

Well blobby (the moon) was doing his best to ruin things last night and their were no NB objects in my slice of sky :( so I figured globs would be the best bet. I managed 7x300s for RG and B on M3 but processing has proved really tricky. Any amount of sharpening and/or noise reduction seem to ruin things. DBE in PI did a grand job though of removing the gradient left by blobby but he and light pollution in the area have taken the edge of things.
