The weather has been terrible over the past month, so no new data. So I have been looking at past data that was not good enough to process or publish. This image was taken during poor conditions of wind and poor seeing, so most of it was captured at 2x2 binning.
The more I spend time with PixInsight the more I learn, and I have learned a lot more since this data was captured, so the resulting image is not that bad. It won't win any competitions, but I am glad I did finally put it together.
