Description

Getting started on this new project - this is 30hrs of 3nm Ha (1800sec subs).
I've stretched this pretty far to see if I can show the chevron on the left hand side. It's likely to need double this amount of data, as it's only just showing there now.
11hrs O3 (1800secs) & RGB stars.

Keen to try a different approach with this very well known target.
Finally happy with the RC8 collimation too :)
