Description

Hey everyone, now that it's summer I finally have the time to start uploading images to Astrobin again. I mainly use Instagram to share my photos, Its a great network for outreach and there is an amazing astro community. Unfortunately, the app can butcher photos. I look forward to being part of this great community again as well.

I recently picked up a couple new scopes, and ED102FCD100 & and ED127CF FCD100. This was an image I put together while still getting a feel for the slower speed of the 127. It's only 4 900 second subs in 3nn Ha and 4 900 second subs in 3nm Oiii. However I was surprised with how well it came out
