Description

Finally some clear sky, cooler temperatures and occasional good seeing! So it's back to a well-placed Vela in NB for a 4 panel mosaic with 6 hours of SII HA and OIII over a handful of nights. Shorter runs of shorter exposures across the mosaic field allowed more consistency between subs.
