Description

Here is the image taken piggy back at the same time as Thor's Helmet 2. Having two cameras going at the same time is beyond useful for me in that I am able to practice with two sets of data and the cameras are quite different. It also gives me lots of data to play with. The ASI 1600 is much more difficult to process than the Moravian G3 16200.

Thanks for looking

Overshot the Red on the first try. Also looks washed out. Hopefully fixed it.

C

Still overshot red. Maybe this will do it.
