I took this one trying to figure out on how to use luminance with IDAS LPS D2 filter. As last week my mount did not yet cooperate for guiding (now it's solved, I hope for good) I decided for big amount of short subs unguided. I have not RGB filters yet, so have to stick with lumionance, but will be definitely making color some time. Just a slight resize, like 10% plus slight crop after stacking. From my backyard at the orange zone of Cracow, Poland.
