Felt like doing something quick and simple for a change - some quick looks at some common bright objects.

Each object is about 2.5 hours each, 60s subs. I used gain=200 and offset=50 with the ASI1600MM-Cool camera @ -25C.

I did very minimal processing - deconvolution, masked stretch - some denoise on NGC 7635 but otherwise mostly in a 'raw' state.

I enjoy taking deep images of objects but something quick and satisfying for a change is fine too.
