      Description

      Steve and I set out with a goal to add considerably more data to our 2019 dataset however we were thwarted by the weather through February so only achieved a modest quantity of new LRGB subs. In total we added 15 x 600s Lum; 12 x 300s Red and the same for Green; and only 7 x 300s of Blue.  However, I think it has helped improve the quality of the final image.  Completely re-processed using new processes and techniques such as Generalised Hyperbolic Stretch.

      For me, this target is one I will want to return to so I can achieve the full potential of our shared high resolution imaging system.
